BIYC will wrap up season with Fun Regatta

Anyone with an Optimist, Laser, Laser 2 or any other two-person dinghy welcome to join in

On August 30, the Bowen Island Yacht Club will be hosting its second Fun Regatta of the season at Tunstall Bay.

It’s a chance for sailors to consolidate their skills while enjoying some healthy competition.

The focus will be on learning basic racing skills and strategies, for sailors of all abilities, in a variety of dinghy fleets (Optimist, Laser, Laser 2, and any other two-person dinghy).

All BIYC 2015 sailors and members (minimum age eight with sufficient skill to sail independently) are invited to charter one of BIYC’s 18 boats. 

All other sailors are invited to bring their own small sailboats.

Fun Regatta Schedule:
1100: Skippers meeting by the boathouse ramp
1130: Launch all boats
1200: First Race
1530: Last Race
1600: De-rig and cleanup

Following the Regatta at 5pm is the Learn 2 Sail end-of-summer barbeque and awards presentation.  BIYC hopes to see many of our L2S summer sailors and their families!
