The 47th Annual Southern Straits - April 3-5, 2015


Hard to believe, but Good Friday April 3rd 2015 will mark the 47th consecutive start for the West Vancouver Yacht Club’s Southern Straits Classic.

We are now on the less than 2 week countdown to the official Race Start, and are thrilled to have a record number of 1st time Skippers registered for Straits 2015! Registration is still open, but a reminder that registration closes at end of day, Sunday March 29, 2015 as per the NOR.

If you are not racing, please join us at Dundarave Pier on April 3rd to see the Fleet off as they start their 2015 Southern Straits adventure. Beginning at 9:30am, WVYC hosts a family friendly Event at the Pier that allows spectators to view the popular pre-race "Parade of Boats", a Lions Pancake Breakfast, the West Vancouver Pops Band and onshore displays. The Race officially starts at 10:30am, so arrive at the Pier early to secure a front row viewing spot.

We look forward to seeing you on the 2015 Start Line!
