What a better way to start off the New Year than on the water! DSA Victoria is pleased to host a fun regatta for keel boat racers belonging to any club. The regatta is hosted at CFSA and all proceeds raised go to help lower the operational costs of our summer sailing program. The Regatta starts off with a panca
ke breakfast by donation, followed by a fun race with unique Sailing Instruction where crews gain points for accomplishing  tasks unlike anything else! Sailing quizzes, camaraderie and fun, followed by a batch of homemade Chowder and ‘Moosemilk’ make for a memorable day of sailing in beautiful Esquimalt Harbour.

The Schedule is as follows:
0900 – 1045: Pancake Breakfast (by donation)

1100 – 1115: Skippers Meeting

Entry fee: $5 per boat, and $5 per crew. ‘Penalty Buns’ are $1 each. Protest protection and skippers challenges available to purchase *cash only event*. Visiting boats welcome. Contact foreshore@cfsaesq.ca to arrange slip.

The Admiral Martin Trophy will be awarded to the boat and crew best displaying seamanship skills as outlined in the SI’s. The Kelly Linklater Memorial Trophy will be awarded to the boat that raises the most funds for DSA. 

CFSA also hosts an exciting New Year’s Eve Party, complete with entertainment, food and drinks. Make a weekend of it and attend CFSA’s New Year’s Eve Party.
