RACING UPDATE 2017!

Fellow keelboat racing enthusiasts:

Our spring racing series will commence April 22 this year.  We will race every Saturday weather permitting with the last in the series being on June 10th.  for a total of 7 races.   The one exception will be the May long weekend (May 20 – 22) during which the annual Algerine race will take place on Sunday, 21st. pitting the Comox club against our Powell River club. 

As per usual we will meet in the Comox ferry terminal just above the North boat harbor at 9:00 am sharp to discuss weather and choose a course.  Just a reminder that all crew must have an approved personal floatation device and all boats competing must meet club safety standards

We especially welcome any new or old club members to come out and compete.  As well as the camaraderie there is the huge bonus of being able to develop your sailing skills with all the accompanying support and friendly advice you could ask for.  

If you have any thoughts or questions please call me at 604 483-3205 or e-mail me at lauritz@xplornet.com

See you April 22nd.
