  • a legendary after-party! (BBQ, music and prizes)
  • an open, low-intensity format, suitable to sailors of all experience levels (and budgets!)

If you are new to the Scrambleprepare for the race: The “About the Race” page contains information, maps, explanations and useful tips.

"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."
