Four Long Courses:

Section 11 of the Notices of Race indicates there will be no moorage charge for race entrants on the Thursday and Friday preceding the Swiftsure start if moored at the Greater Victoria Harbour Authority’s Causeway Floats in front of the Fairmont Empress Hotel and at Ship Point. After the races, there will be no moorage charge for race entrants upon return to the harbour up to and including Sunday night, May 28 at the Causeway Floats in front of the Fairmont Empress Hotel and at Ship Point.

 

Swiftsure Inshore Classic:

Section 11 of the Notice of Race indicates there will be no moorage charge for race entrants on the Thursday and Friday preceding the Swiftsure start if moored at the Greater Victoria Harbour Authority’s Causeway Floats in front of the Fairmont Empress Hotel and at Ship Point. After the race, overnight moorage for race entrants will be provided at no charge at the Royal Victoria Yacht Club in Cadboro Bay (i.e., on May 27, 2017).

 

Moorage on May 24 or earlier OR on May 29 or later:

To make arrangements for moorage up to and including Wednesday May 24, 2017 or after Sunday May 28, 2017 contact the Greater Victoria Harbour Authority (you will pay the Greater Victoria Harbour Authority directly for moorage).

 

Support vessels for Racers:

Unfortunately, due to limited dock space, “mother ships” and other support vessels cannot be accommodated on the docks in front of the Fairmont Empress Hotel or Ship Point. Some competitors race yachts will be rafted adjacent to the docks and the fleet needs to be able to break up these rafts quickly to make a clean getaway on Saturday morning. Shifting support vessels around makes this difficult, if not impossible. If you want your support vessel nearby, we suggest you contact the Greater Victoria Harbour Authority to reserve a place on the Wharf Street docks. While you’ll have to pay, the rates are reasonable and your support vessel will be a short walk away from your racing boat.
