Ladies Race & Cruise

The 12th Annual Ladies Race & Cruise to Elliott Bay will be held May 25-26, 2019

Dig out your spa robe, fuzzy slippers and mud masks and prepare for a fabulous women’s weekend away at our favorite outstation on May 25th and 26th 2019. All WVYC women boaters, both power and sail, are welcome and encouraged to attend.

Last year 12 boats and 33 women took part. The event features a pursuit style race or cruise to the outstation followed by lots of fun and frivolity once we arrive. All skill levels are welcome so get your boat and crew together now. There is plenty of support at this event even if you are new on the helm. This is a great opportunity to try it out. All female sailing crews will be contenders for the prestigious Diva Trophy. You are welcome to bring your own boat, have a “chauffeur” on your boat or join another boat as crew (Let Jane know at if you need help finding a ride or crew).


The theme this year is Spa Surprise! We will gather in the cabin in our robes and slippers. Try out treatments in the Serenity Spa Shack, put on a mud mask, sip cucumber water and listen to pan flute music, perhaps win a “bubbly” bubble bath, share favorite nail polish colours, get a shoulder massage and pamper ourselves. There will be a blind wine tasting so bring a favorite bottle of wine to have others try and compare notes. Also, bring an appetizer to share along with your hidden talents as we move into dinner and the rest of the evening. Surprise and surprising entertainment will follow. You are sure to be laughing all evening long!


Cost per person: $25.00, plus applicable taxes
