Swiftsure International Yacht Race 2015

Swiftsure-Week-2015-Banner-300x69On Wednesday, May 20th competitors yachts begin arriving in Victoria’s Inner Harbour. The Swiftsure Centre will open Thursday, and from then through Friday it will be filled with sailors checking in for their races. With the Swiftsure Centre now located in and by the Steamship Grill & Bar, there will be great food options right there!

Saturday the races begin! Clover Point is the best location for those interested in viewing the start. The yachts will jockey for the best starting position in the area off Clover Point and it will be quite a sight. The races continue through the weekend with yachts in the long distance courses crossing the finish line off the end of the Ogden Point Breakwater during the night of Saturday and continuing all day Sunday and into that evening.

The Swiftsure Race Tracker system will be in the Swiftsure Centre from Saturday throughout the race and will show the positions of the competitors as they make their way along the race courses. Please click here for more information.
