A breezy return to the Commodores’ Cup for Bowen Island Yacht Club

It's been a couple of years since BIYC has participated in the annual event.
Sailors standing left to right: Derek Zanvliet (coach), Ellie Walters, Ben Shap, Ryan Champoux (coach) and Ava Shaw (coach); and sitting left to right: Kashton Ogden, Christopher Oben, Henry Sinclair and Abby Walters.

A couple of weeks ago, Bowen Island Yacht Club summer sailors participated in a four-day Commodores’ Cup. 

This is an introductory regatta open to all summer program sailors in the Vancouver area and hosted yearly by the Royal Vancouver Yacht Club. 

The BIYC has not participated for two past years but returned with a gust this year with seven sailors and five boats. 

We entered three Optimist boats (single-handed dinghys) and two double-handed RS Fevas, which are new to the club this year. 

While Optimus green category sailors do not get their results posted, our two RS Feva teams placed 7th and 10th.
