We're back sailors! Back with Tiddly Cove’s annual English Bay Scramble, the most interesting and popular sailboat race in Vancouver, and perhaps in the world.  No more weekend regatta, no more Shenzhen Challenge, just pure, unadulterated racing conundrums.  Which way to go? Skippers and crews competing in the Scramble will be the most highly regarded sailors we know, and perhaps that one could meet, ever.

 The English Bay Scramble is a unique race where tacticians have free rein in how the marks are rounded, even which way to cross the start line. It delivers a unique combination of:

  • the strategic challenges of a long distance race (varying sea states, winds, tides)
  • the accessibility of English Bay (no long delivery trips required)
  • an open, low-intensity format, suitable to sailors of all experience levels (and budgets!)

Details on racing can be found somewhere, maybe below, maybe not yet but certainly before the start.  Other info will follow.

The Race – when it is at:
  • Racing starts at 11am on Saturday August 14th.

Notice of Race


"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
