We are going to Victoria in August!
August 15-16, 2015
This is the other highlight race of our year (besides Portland). It is by far our favorite race, although we haven’t attended for several years.
- Exciting 5-boat heats run over two days (two races per day). Because they split teams into a number of divisions based on Saturday’s performance, the Sunday races are always close, with less than a second separating the first and fifth place teams!
- It’s Victoria! With all the down-time at races, wouldn’t you like to be someplace worth hanging out? The venue is right downtown, across from the Empress hotel. It’s a very fun vacation.
- The US dollar is stronger than the Canadian dollar right now. That means everything is a little less expensive for us.
Sign up NOW and Book Your Hotel
Get onto Priceline, Hotels.com or whatever and book your room as soon as possible. There is a good Hostel that’s a 10-minute walk to the venue. It’s cheap, but noisy.
A lot of us car pool to the race. We drive up on Friday, take the ferry across (1 hour), and return home Monday morning. Darrell often rents the sand volleyball courts at the Strathcona hotel on Sunday night after the races, and we have a team pizza party on Saturday night.
