Comox Summer Fun Regatta on Aug. 9-10

Weekend includes B.C. championships for 420 and Optimist Class sailors

The Comox Valley Sailing Club is hosting the Comox Summer Fun Regatta on Aug. 9-10, which will include the B.C 420 and B.C. Optimist Class championships.

CBSC Commodore Andy Walther notes the championships will feature 70-80 boats with 160-170 young sailors (10 to 18 years of age) competing in Comox Bay.

In conjunction with the event, there is a three-day training camp from Aug. 6-8 which Walther says will feature big participation by the sailing club as well as HMCS Quadra.

This is the second year the CBSC has hosted the event, and Walther notes it’s a large undertaking for the small club.

With that in mind, the CBSC is looking for volunteers to assist with the events. Those interested are asked to email “No experience needed; just enthusiasm and a willingness to learn,” a spokesperson said.
