SIN 2020 CANCELLED
It is with regret, but probably no surprise to anyone, that we have cancelled plans for the Nanaimo Yacht Club’s Basil Hobbs Memorial Snake Island Nanaimo (SIN) Regatta for 2020. While various civil restrictions may be lifted by early July, it is obvious that no “mass gatherings” will be allowed this summer. Certainly SIN qualifies as a mass gathering, which is half its charm.
Also, we are concerned about our small army of volunteers – wonderful people all – necessary to ensure SIN’s success. Their safety and the safety of our competitors is top of mind in this decision.
So let’s look forward to SIN 2021 which will occur Friday, Saturday and Sunday, July 2, 3 and 4, 2021.
It has been confirmed that we will host the Martin 242 North American Championships and Canadian Championships in 2021. Thanks to the M242 people for your confidence in the Nanaimo Yacht Club. The M242 NAs in 2022 will be hosted by the California Yacht Club at Marina del Ray.
We extend greetings to our PHRF fleets, multihull fleets, and cruiser racers to come and enjoy Nanaimo’s SIN experience next year.
In 2021 our regatta will continue to offer VARC and VIRS members a stop on their regatta schedule for point accumulation to determine our regions’ top racing boats.
In the meantime, stay home, study charts, watch race training videos and stay safe.
