Wednesday Evening Series

Registration is open. The first Wednesday is April 24th. See you on the water!

Don't forget the start time of 6:00pm!

West Vancouver's warm summer evenings attract a large number of yachts to the Wednesday Evening series which runs weekly from late April until late September. This series strikes a perfect balance between competitive racing on the water and relaxed socializing in the Clubhouse afterward including our popular BBQ offerings and bar service.

Fee increase:

As you read the NOR or register you will no doubt have questions regarding the new fee structure. Fleet committee has set up a new fee structure in part to deal with the difficulty of extracting volunteers from the member boats racing, and partly to address the increasing costs we've seen over the last few years, and partly for consistency in the pricing for doing one series or all five. So with that in mind this is what we've come up with.

Going forward this year the plan is to charge $15 per race for members and non-members alike. Then charge $10 per race for not having to volunteer. Non-members don't volunteer therefore don't pay the volunteer portion. There are 21 races planned for this year starting April 24th.

For members:

Price is $25 per race which includes a $10 volunteer amount. If you commit to all series you get a 20% discount making the price is $420. This is $105 less than if you booked each series individually.

Each time you provide a volunteer you will get $40 ($10x4) credited back to you. If it's in series 1 that amount will be $50 ($10x5)

For non-members:

Price is $15 per race, same as members but no volunteer portion added on. If they commit to all 5 series they get a 20% discount = $250 (Really $252 but we rounded it off).

We hope you see $15 a race to be reasonable and a 20% discount for committing to all 5 series an incentive to do all 5. $10 a race for not providing a volunteering helps cover the costs for mark set, gas, mark maintenance, line replacement, RC, etc.

Remember that every time you provide a "useful" volunteer you get a credit. There is a limit to the number of volunteers we take each week so it will be on a first come first accepted basis.
