Pumpkin Bowl Regatta: Billets Wanted, Moorage & Parking!

pumpkin bowl regatta

The Annual WVYC Pumpkin Bowl Regatta is next weekend,
Saturday, October 13 - Sunday, October 14th. With already 148 boats registered,
this ought to be a great regatta!

Billeting for Pumpkin Bowl Sailors

Due to an unprecedented number of registrations this year, we are seeking Club members willing to provide a bed or two to the large number of sailors requiring billeting during the upcoming weekend of the Pumpkin Bowl Regatta, October 13-14, 2018. 

Please fill in the “offer to host” form on the Club website, click here
OR please send an email to Susan Harney at harnco@shaw.ca and advise of the following:
(1) how many persons you can accommodate
(2) if you would prefer a certain age or gender

We will put you in touch with the sailor(s), once you are matched up. All meals are provided at the Club, although breakfast is optional.  Some billets may require driving to and from the Club. 
Your help is greatly appreciated!

Empty Slips
If you plan to be out of the basin on the October 13-14 weekend, please let Chelsea at the Front Office (admin@wvyc.ca) know, with anticipated time of return. Thank you! 

Parking
Parking will be very tight as the parking area west of the Yachting Centre will be used to accommodate the 148+ visiting dinghies. The west gate will be open to permit ease of access for the Eagle Island Residents and the RCM-SAR. If you are coming to the Club on that weekend, carpool­ing is requested as space will be very tight. Our neighbors Thunderbird Marine will accommodate trailers and over­flow vehicles, parking passes will be issued.

Thank You!
A huge and heartfelt thank-you to the 120 volunteers and the organizing committee!
