Racing

WVYC is home to the most active and competitive racing program in Metro Vancouver. Club races are held throughout the year, from no-flying sails right up to some of the most competitive racing in the region. The highlights of the racing year are the Southern Straits Classic, a national one design regatta and the Pumpkin Bowl Regatta for youth racers. These signature events attract competition from all around the Pacific Northwest.

Competitors relish the fact that WVYC is located in an ideal racing environment. If there is wind anywhere, it’s here - it's very rare for a race to be cancelled due to lack of wind.

Race management is held to high standards. Moreover, if you want to improve your own racing skills, WVYC offers regular opportunities for hands-on competition, race-committee volunteering opportunities, tech talks, and Safety at Sea courses for distance and offshore racing. Contact Fleetcaptain@wvyc.ca to get involved.
