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 Inner Harbour Causeway Floats 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 27 at the Causeway Floats 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 Inner Harbour Causeway Floats 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 26, 2018).

 

Moorage on May 23 or earlier OR on May 28 or later:

To make arrangements for moorage up to and including Wednesday May 23, 2018 or after Sunday May 27, 2018 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 Greater Victoria Harbour Authority’s Inner Harbour Causeway Floats docks 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 race 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.

Similarly, support vessels cannot be accommodated at the Royal Victoria Yacht Club’s docks on the night of Saturday, May 26, 2018. We suggest you contact the Oak Bay Marine Group to reserve a place at their Oak Bay Marina.
