Racing Overview

SCYC hosts an active racing program based from Schooner Cove Marina. Racing is the best way to learn about the intricacies and joy of sailing. Our inclusive racing program welcomes all kinds and ages of sailors, from experienced racers to novices. Enjoy the camaraderie, fun and exhilaration of yacht racing! Our skippers and crew compete locally and at other racing events in BC, Washington and Oregon.

  • Wednesday Evening Summer Fun Racing - ideal for sailors who like to race, or want to learn, but don't want to get too serious about it
  • June Regatta featuring the Lasqueti Island Race. This regatta offers comeptitive racing and draws boats from Victoria to Campbell River
  • September Fleet Regatta with the focus on fun
