Regatta Safety Notice

The responsibility for deciding whether to start a race or whether to continue racing lies solely with the skipper of each boat. No responsibility for the craft and crew entered in these and other DCYC organized races is implied or accepted by any officer of the DCYC, regardless of the conditions prevailing. By going to sea the skipper of the boat confirms that it is fit for those conditions in which it will find itself and that its crew is competent to sail and compete in them

The safety of a boat and its crew is the sole and inescapable responsibility of the owner, or owner's representative, who must ensure that the boat is fully seaworthy and manned by an experienced crew who have undergone appropriate training and are physically fit to face whatever weather may be encountered. They must be satisfied as to the soundness of hull, spars, rigging, sails and all gear. They must ensure that all safety equipment is properly maintained and stowed and that the crew know where it is kept and how it is to be used.

The boat is required to hold adequate insurance for racing purposes.
Nothing done by the organizers can reduce the complete and unlimited responsibility of the owner or owner's representative, nor will it make the organizers responsible for any loss, damage, death or personal injury, however it may have occurred, as a result of the boat taking part in racing. The organizers encompass everyone helping to run the races and the events, and include the organizing authority, the race committee, and the race officers.

Life Jackets
If the wind strength is expected to be Force 5 or above, the Race Officer will fly Flag Y. When Flag Y is flown all crew members must wear Life Jackets.

First Aid, Access to Shore, and Safety Equipment
A list of Qualified First Aiders will be held by the Principal Race Officer.

DCYC will provide a car and driver for non-urgent transport to medical facilities.

The nearest hospital with accident and emergency facilities is Lions Gate Hospital, 231 East 15th Street
North Vancouver, B.C. V7L 2L7. Phone: 604-988-3131

Access to shore is available at the public dock and launch ramp at the western edge of the south shore of Cates Park. There is a government dock in Deep Cove just south of the DCYC facilities, and there is access to shore from the docks at DCYC.

The committee boat will have first-aid kits and other safety equipment on board including bolt cutters.

 
 

Racing at DCYC

When you enter the Deep Cove Yacht Club clubhouse you notice that the display cases are filled with trophies. These trophies represent the long tradition of sailboat racing at DCYC. Over the years, our club has produced many top notch sailors. Even though some of the faces have changed, the rich racing/sailing tradition at DCYC continues on to this day. "Any Sunday" you will see the docks spilling over with crews getting the boats ready to race. You'll find keelboat racing series, dingy sailing for juniors , and major events such as the VARC Martin Marine Deep Cove Regatta that DCYC will be hosting again this year in September. We have events to attract the serious sailboat racers and for the more casual sailors we have the Deep Cove Rally which will be held in June. Most of our club racers are always looking for crew, which makes this an activity for all members to enjoy. So if you are looking to join in the fun, come on down to the docks...we promise no one will be left behind!

Sailboat racing truly encompasses the great heritage and community spirit of DCYC. We welcome participation from the community and other clubs such as the Centennial Sailing Club. Members and non-members have made our racing program a huge success. To find out more about our sailboat racing program, please feel free to contact Fleet Captain Tony Gill at or check out the notices in the racing section of the bulletin board downstairs at the clubhouse.

This years racing schedule promises to deliver another action-packed season...we hope to see you down on the docks.

2016 Regatta Review

Another great VARC Martin Marine Regatta September 10 and 11 for DCYC. We had 27 boats register and compete over 2 days at the Cove. Weather and wind played their part and a good time was had by all. Many thanks to all the volunteers from the club who contributed to make this event a success.

Thanks to the food and bar team, the BBQ went down really well. Our main Sponsors for the event were Martin Marine: $1000 and great prizes - Steamworks: supplied free Keg and prizes - Polar: contributed great prizes - Lynwood marina who supplied a great prize of a lift. Navis insurance who supplied the race officer James McDonald Nesters Market who supplied food over 2 days for the committee boat We Also had support from the local Deep Cove retail community who contributed through vouchers for free coffee and discounts off menu items for the sailors.

Please view the Youtube video done by Brent Lapham, Deep Cove is paradise, thank you Brent.

Once again thanks to all the volunteers and Rob Leblond for the service of his boat.

We look forward to making this event even better next year.

Fleet Captain Tony Gill

2007 Fall Div Summary

2007 Winter Div Summary

Fleet Captain – Robert Smith

We’ll have to let the results speak for themselves. This was one of the tightest Div A championships ever. With perennial BOTY challenger Imagine, winning a close championship over High Strung and Crystal Dolphin. After the Winter and Spring Series Crystal Dolphin took a narrow 1 point lead over Imagine into the summer, High Strung sat in third 5 points back but riding high off a Spring Series victory. It would all come down to the Fall Series. As happens, the weather shortened the schedule to only 4 races. Imagine winning the 3 they competed in to squeeze out a 1 point overall Division Championship! Crystal Dolphin finished second and High Strung faded to a distance third, and on to an early retirement. Farewell thee C&C 27, you will be missed.

While we bid farewell to one, we say hello to a new Choat 27, Rodger Welch’s new campaign named “Straight Shot” and she would replace the Div A Kirby 25, Flaming Redhead. The Flaming Redhead name was transferred to the Choat and Rodger was transferred to Div 1 with another sleek, potentially fast, red machine! The thunder in Div 1 belonged to Aquila, Rob Sloss and his international crew almost ran the table, winning 8 out of 9 races in the Winter/Spring sessions and coasted to victory tied to the dock for the fall series. “You’re always first to the bar when you don’t leave the dock!” Hot Spur, Powomis and My Mister we’re the other notables in Div 1.

We introduced First in Division race mugs to the Fleet a tradition that continues to this day. That includes a free beer to the winning skippers. Or in Brian’s case a Chardonnay! As always, the Fleet gathers in the clubhouse after each race to toast the day, the results and warm up with a plate of nachos! Another tradition that makes Deep Cove racing our favourite time of year!
