Racing galore at Comox Dock Days all weekend

Sunday schedule includes Sailfest

The Old House Hotel and Spa (left) and Locals Restaurant squared off in the finals of the inaugural Vancouver Island Tourism Trophy Race.

The race, hosted by Compass Adventure Sailing Centre, pitted different hospitality industry companies against each other in head-to-head races in trimarans for the past few weeks, with the finals taking place Saturday, as part of the BC Seafood Festival’s Dock Days.

A highlight of the Dock Days weekend is the not-to-be-missed Sailfest, the most exciting sailboat racing ever seen in Canada, being held Sunday from 11 a.m.–4 p.m.

Cheer on your favourite team at the outrigger canoe races, which includes two days of racing for all paddle disciplines and abilities. Sunday’s schedule will include the traditional small boat race – OC1-2, surfski – and a separate SUP technical race right off the pier at the Comox Marina Park. There will also be a fun race for the kids on Sunday afternoon.
