Sailpast & Race
Hello TCYC Members.
Well, summer will soon be upon us and the weather for Sailpast will no doubt be flawless!. As you all know Saturday May 12 is our Sailpast, our first in honour of new Commodore Jo-Ann Heinz.
Member attendance is mandatory for the Sailpast portion of the day's events. This doesn't mean that if you have a family emergency you cant let us know and attend to things but this is a requirement of membership and is the only mandatory event of the year. Besides its regal and traditional and fun.
The Sailpast will commence at 11am sharp. Please be in the area of the Commodore's boat on time. It can take a while to get to Tiddly Cove from False Creek especially in a westerly and/or a flood tide. Tiddly Cove is located near Sandy Cove Park (approx.. N49 20.397 W123 13.740) on the West Vancouver shoreline.
Sailpast Race: This year's race should be interesting as we continue with a longer course and other changes designed to make the race more competitive. I do want to remind everyone that if you plan on racing you may need to take your own elapsed time so please ensure you have a timer capable of that on board.
Most important thing, have fun!
POST-RACE Commodores Reception
This year we've planned a hamburger BBQ (beef or veggie) at the Burrard Civic Marina 1655 Whyte Ave. We will set up there at 4PM following the Sailpast and race to enjoy some burgers, salads and socialize. It will be BYOB but food will be provided. Members are encouraged to register for this so we know how many burgers we need.
Should the weather not be cooperative we have the use of the downstairs room at Burrard Civic Marina.
See you there!
