Becoming a Volunteer

Add your time and talents, and play your unique role in the 49th Annual Southern Straits Classic


Southern Straits is proudly hosted by the West Vancouver Yacht Club and 2017 will mark the 49th Anniversary of this historic event. Attracting Skippers and Crew from around the globe, Straits is the first Pacific Long Distance regatta in the calendar year, and many of our competitors go on to compete in other long distance races such as VanIsle 360 and Vic-Maui.

Each year the Race Organizers rely on hundreds of volunteers to run a successful Event. There are lots of ways to help out and you don’t need to be a sailor or a West Vancouver Yacht Club Member to be part of the team.

Southern Straits 2017 runs from Thursday, April 13th to 0030 Sunday April 16, 2017. All volunteers must attend a prior orientation session and may be required to attend additional training sessions as deemed required by the various Committee Chairs.

Best regards,
