The Swiftsure Steering Committee has issued Amendment #4 to the Notice of Race for the Swiftsure Inshore Classic.
The area for the race course has been enlarged to ensure that faster boats, such as multihulls, will have a full day of racing on May 26th. As stated in the NOR for the Swiftsure Inshore Classic the course will be determined after consideration of the weather prediction and tidal currents, and signaled from the race committee boats at the start line. The finish is unchanged and will be in Cadboro Bay near the Royal Victoria Yacht Club.
This premiere race of the Pacific Northwest is the 69th Swiftsure since 1930. It will showcase three overnight race courses (80, 103, and 139 nautical miles) and one long day race course. Swiftsure's for monohulls and multihulls of every size. There are single, double handed, and fully crewed divisions to choose from. With the start line off Victoria's beautiful waterfront, and racing in the Strait of Juan de Fuca with its beautiful coastline and challenging winds and currents, it is a must for all sailors young and old.
