The Racing Rules of Sailing which are now in effect and will govern all FYC races for the next several years.
The skipper of each yacht is to ensure current Provincial Covid-19 protocols are followed. In addition, for every race each yacht is to maintain a registry of everyone on board, complete with current contact information, email addresses, cell phone numbers, etc.
Have a great sailing/racing season and stay safe!!

The FYC racing community is all about fostering new racers, growing member’s racing and sailing skills and providing a competitive venue for racers to push their skills and boats.
Wednesday nights, throughout the summer, we meet at 5:00pm-5:30pm on the wharf on Douglas Harbour. We socialize and a course is drawn-up by the organizer(courses depend on conditions). Usually racing starts at 6:30pm (6pm late in the season). We will start two or three classes of boats in a 5 minute staggered start.
Boats are matched up into classes based on the speed of the boat and the experience of the captain. A handicap system is used so that all of the boats in the fleet are competitive.
We have a variety of cup races that happen throughout the summer. Generally these will take place on a single day of racing. The format of the cup races is the same as the Wednesday night races. For more details on each cup race, see the description pages.
