Northwest yachting tradition to take place from April 6-8, 2012

What:
The West Vancouver Yacht Club (WVYC) is reminding sailors to mark their calendars for the return of the Annual Southern Straits Classic. Now in its 44th year, the regatta is a West Coast racing tradition and an Easter Weekend ritual for sailors, their families, and the community.

Three redesigned courses, ranging from 64 to 132 nautical miles, will see sailors criss-crossing Georgia Strait, testing their strategy, skill, and endurance. In honour of two long-standing WVYC members and veterans of many Straits races, the medium course has been named after Jim Pine and the Short Course after Buddy Hulscher.

New this year is a team racing option for clubs that want to enter a team of three yachts to compete against other clubs. Back by popular demand will be the double handed division for those wishing to race as a duo.

WVYC will also offer live yacht tracking of the event to help friends and family monitor the race’s progress. The yacht tracker will be streamed on the clubhouse big screen TV for those that wish to come down and be part of the action.

Who:
WVYC is inviting all racers to participate in this challenging overnight race.

When:
The race will take place over the weekend of April 6th-8th, 2012.
Starting sequences will begin at 10:25 a.m.

*Skippers who register before Sunday, March 11 will be entered in the Early Bird Prize Draw'.*

Where:
West Vancouver Yacht Club
5854 Marine Drive
West Vancouver, BC
