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 Robert Smith 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.

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.
