Racing

The Royal Victoria Yacht Club began with a yacht race in 1892. With a long tradition in racing, we host a variety of local regattas throughout the year, encouraging sportsmanship and excellence in competitive sailing. 

The Club has one of the premier Learn to Sail programs in Canada. Our Dinghy sailors compete at all levels in a variety of dinghies, including Bytes, Opti’s Lasers, 29rs, 49rs, 420s and Fireballs, We are proud to be the home port for multiple National, International and Olympic sailors and we are particularly proud of our recent Paralympic podium finishes!

Dinghy sailing at our Club is complemented by several keelboat racing programs; there is a fleet of smaller, easy to sail keelboats (Martin 242’s) which are available for adult sailing instruction and for use by members for competition. In addition there are very active fleets of Mini 12 and 2.4mR boats as well as fleets of larger keelboats and multihull boats that do both Distance sailing and Round the Buoys sailing. 

We also have a growing and exciting Radio Controlled racing series and are hosting two 6 Meter keel boats that we expect to be campaigning nationally and internationally once the COVID pandemic is under control. For more information about 6 Meter sailboats, visit 6metre.com

All of the fleets take advantage of the wonderful sailing weather that we have here in Victoria and race all year round. During the summer months keel boat races are held on Wednesday and Thursday evenings, the rest of the year we sail on Sundays.  We have both casual and competitive racing.

In normal times we encourage people interested in keelboat racing to come down to the Club on race days when you will be sure to be able to ‘catch a ride’ on a race boat!  Due to COVID, we are asking people interested in racing, but who do not have a boat, to contact the Administration Office.

The Royal Victoria Yacht Club hosts a variety of sailing events throughout the year. View the calendar for more information about each event.
