    TCYC Sailor of the Year Challenge

    sponsored by


    The Sailor of the Year Cup is awarded annually to the sailor who turns in the best performance over a trio of diverse sailing challenges including a regatta race, a single-handed race and a double-handed long-distance challenge race, with each individual event run in any boat of the sailor’s choosing. The trophy was inaugurated in 2010, coinciding with the first year the Sailor of the Year challenge was held.

    Sailor of the Year competition is open to all TCYC members and registration is not necessary but please inform the Race Committee prior to the race if you intend to race single or double-handed.


    Qualifying races are as follows:

    Single-handed qualifying races:
    Double-handed qualifying races:
    Fully crewed qualifying races:
    One race in each crewing category must be completed to be in contention (if contenders compete in more than one race in any crewing format the best result will be used). Results for Sailor of the Year will be scored on the low-points system, using PHRF handicaps with no division breaks. Contenders can use different boats for each race (borrow a Cal 20 for Passage Island, get a Martin 242 lined up for the round-the-buoys action, and get aboard a well-equipped Beneteau for the Scramble!).

    Of course, you could also do it all on one boat, and then if you were really brilliant you might be able to win
    Fleet Champion Boat and Fleet Champion Sailor!

    Summer Shorts Thursday Nights



    TCYC is proud to present our annual mid-summer Thursday evening racing series.  On June 20 TCYC takes over from KYC to continue the fine Thursday night racing tradition.

    Boats and racers of all skill levels are encouraged to participate and new racers will find the low key atmosphere especially welcoming.  If you've thought about getting into racing this is the night to do it.

    The NOR and Sailing Instructions for the 2019 TCYC Summer Shorts Series, our Thursday night racing extravaganza, are linked below.

    Join us weekly at the False Creek Yacht Club clubhouse for post-race drinks, dinner, results and door prizes after racing each week.  Overall results and prizes will be awarded to the top three boats in each division in attendance after the last race of the series on Thursday July 25.

    Looking forward to seeing you all on the water!

    We are scheduled to have 6 slips (2 x 35', 4 x 30') in the Gibsons Marina for the 27th July.

    Not only will this be a fun cruising weekend but also our racier members can also sign up for the rejuvenated Sunshine Coast Yacht Club's first regatta: https://www.scycsailing.ca/gibsons-regatta

    If you only want to cruise your boat but are interested in crewing there will be opportunity to leave your boat at the dock and crew on other TCYC boats that are doing the race.  For instance, many will go over solo or as a couple but would love to grab crew off the dock for the race from those who are not racing their own boats!      

    Sunshine Yacht Club is a small club just like us and supporting this regatta may entice more participation in the TCYC English Bay Scramble Weekend Regatta. Come out to Gibsons!

    PRESENT


    The TCYC  English Bay Scramble Weekend Regatta 2019

    Tiddly Cove’s annual English Bay Scramble is the most interesting and popular sailboat race in Vancouver, and perhaps in the world.  @me if you disagree!  Now back with even more intensity - a second day of racing. 

    TCYC has issued a invitation to yacht clubs and sailors in the area to come and take on one of Vancouver's most difficult one day races (TCYC's English Bay Scramble) and then to go head to head with the great sailors of Vancouver in a day of short course, around the cans racing.

    The TCYC English Bay Scramble will change!  A bit.  This year we have reverted to the original course design which requires racers to cross the start finish line after rounding any TWO of the course marks.  We think this will add a bit more variety to courses and challenge racers a bit more. It remains a fun and approachable day of racing around the inner and outer reaches of English Bay, with a great party and awards for the best finishers in a variety of Divisions and one design classes. Results will count as part of the VARC Distance Series.

    What TCYC is doing the next day is offering a second day of racing. Short course races will be scored as a VARC Regatta. Results from the two events (distance and short course) will be aggregated and will lead to awards and a Trophy awarded  (at TCYC annual awards event) to the overall winner of the TCYC English Bay Scramble Weekend Regatta.

    Post race BBQ, results and awards, door prizes and more on Saturday at Kitsilano Yacht Club.  Tickets can be purchased with registration or here.  Sunday post race activities, awards and a Weiner Roast hosted by Karen Weiner of Nest Real Estate Group at the False Creek Yacht Club.

    Our sponsors have really stepped up with prizes that include inflatable pfds, a boat haul, diving/repair services gear bags and more! Support them.

    Come join us for a fun weekend of racing and celebrations!


    Notice of Race

    Results Sunday Short Course 

    "The Scramble is probably the only race in the Lower Mainland where independent thought actually pays off. Nowhere else does splitting away from your competition actually make sense and it is the only race where you can take a course that is not taken by your competitors and actually expect it to pay off in winning. The winning strategies that I have seen so far go from very straightforward to incredibly bizarre." - Peter Lagergren, GOOSE ‘n DUCK, 2006
