Summer Shorts Thursday Nights
Boats and racers of all skill levels are encouraged to participate and new racers will find the low key atmosphere especially welcoming. If you've thought about getting into racing this is the night to do it.
Join us weekly at the False Creek Yacht Club clubhouse for post-race drinks, dinner, results and door prizes after racing each week. Overall results and prizes will be awarded to the top three boats in each division in attendance after the last race of the series on Thursday July 25.
Proudly sponsored by...
We are scheduled to have 6 slips (2 x 35', 4 x 30') in the Gibsons Marina for the 27th July.
Not only will this be a fun cruising weekend but also our racier members can also sign up for the rejuvenated Sunshine Coast Yacht Club's first regatta: https://www.scycsailing.ca/gibsons-regatta
If you only want to cruise your boat but are interested in crewing there will be opportunity to leave your boat at the dock and crew on other TCYC boats that are doing the race. For instance, many will go over solo or as a couple but would love to grab crew off the dock for the race from those who are not racing their own boats!
Sunshine Yacht Club is a small club just like us and supporting this regatta may entice more participation in the TCYC English Bay Scramble Weekend Regatta. Come out to Gibsons!
The TCYC English Bay Scramble Weekend Regatta 2019
Tiddly Cove’s annual English Bay Scramble is the most interesting and popular sailboat race in Vancouver, and perhaps in the world. @me if you disagree! Now back with even more intensity - a second day of racing.
TCYC has issued a invitation to yacht clubs and sailors in the area to come and take on one of Vancouver's most difficult one day races (TCYC's English Bay Scramble) and then to go head to head with the great sailors of Vancouver in a day of short course, around the cans racing.
The TCYC English Bay Scramble will change! A bit. This year we have reverted to the original course design which requires racers to cross the start finish line after rounding any TWO of the course marks. We think this will add a bit more variety to courses and challenge racers a bit more. It remains a fun and approachable day of racing around the inner and outer reaches of English Bay, with a great party and awards for the best finishers in a variety of Divisions and one design classes. Results will count as part of the VARC Distance Series.
What TCYC is doing the next day is offering a second day of racing. Short course races will be scored as a VARC Regatta. Results from the two events (distance and short course) will be aggregated and will lead to awards and a Trophy awarded (at TCYC annual awards event) to the overall winner of the TCYC English Bay Scramble Weekend Regatta.
Post race BBQ, results and awards, door prizes and more on Saturday at Kitsilano Yacht Club. Tickets can be purchased with registration or here. Sunday post race activities, awards and a Weiner Roast hosted by Karen Weiner of Nest Real Estate Group at the False Creek Yacht Club.
Our sponsors have really stepped up with prizes that include inflatable pfds, a boat haul, diving/repair services gear bags and more! Support them.
Come join us for a fun weekend of racing and celebrations!
Please support and thank all of our sponsors:
