This will be the 71st running of the race and we hope even more racers participate this year. Mark the May 24 start of Swiftsure 2014 on your calendar and plan to enjoy friendly Victoria and great sailing.

The 2014 Notices of Race will be posted January 3, 2014 and competitors may register online or through a paper registration process. The race courses will be the same as last year — three distance races (Swiftsure Lightship Classic, Cape Flattery, and Juan de Fuca) and the Inshore Race.
