Good Friday 2016 will mark the 48th consecutive year for the Southern Straits Classic Race hosted by the West Vancouver Yacht Club. Planning is already well underway and we are looking forward to welcoming you back to the Start Line on Friday, March 25th 2016.
We are pleased to announce a couple of additions to next year’s race:
  • In addition to PHRF and IRC, ORC Scoring will now be offered to boats with a valid certificate.
  • The Southern Straits Classic now offers FOUR course options: the traditional Short, Medium and Long with a new Grande course, open to all ORC, IRC and PHRF boats with a rating of zero or less.
  • The Inshore Course registration will now be held open to noon on Thursday, March 24th 2016 with a reduced registration fee of $35.00 plus GST.
  • Early Bird Registration Fee savings are available to all for one extra day as February 2016 is a leap year!

Online registration will open on January 1st, 2016. Entries received before end of day on Sunday, February 29th 2016 will be entered into the Early Bird draw and receive discounted registration rates.
