Snake Island Nanaimo - SIN - Regatta 2017

The Basil Hobbs Memorial
Snake Island Nanaimo (SIN) Regatta 2018
Friday, June 29 to Sunday, July 1

Our SIN Regatta ofers great racing, serious fun, fantastic value, and a GREAT way to celebrate Canada's birthday.

Racers will have divisions and courses tuned for different boats.

A Cruiser/Racer division is planned for boats that are not fully race prepared and crewed, but want to participate in a race regatta (no PHRF rating certificate needed for this division only).

One-designs are welcome! Multihulls and faster monohulls will have new course options this year, we may even have a long-distance courses around Halibut Bank.

Come for the Party... race for the halibut!

Regular registration is just $70, and this is reduced to $50 for early-birds completing registration and payment before June 1st.  Any boat from yacht clubs in the Lower Mainland, Cowichan Bay and further south, Comox YC and further north will have their fees waived and may race for free following pre-registration.

A big thank you goes out to our sponsors!
