2013 Racing Calendar

There have been some amendments to the early January 2013 calendar that was published in the 2012 Yearbook.

  • The Portland-Moresby and Walker Rock Race have been moved to allow for more daylight for the longer Portland-Moresby Race
  • The Groundhog Day Race has been moved to accommodate a conflict at the clubhouse for the Brunch and also to move it to Groundhog weekend.
  • With the exception of the Round Saltspring Race, the calendar has been revised to move races away from long weekends
  • Note: all Club series race dates are subject to weather, and may be rescheduled if they cannot be completed on the originally scheduled dates.

NFS = No Flying Sails
SH = Single Handed
