Canadian Optimist Dinghy Championships
August 17 - August 23
The Squamish Yacht Club and West Vancouver Yacht Club are excited to be co-hosting the 2018 Canadian Optimist Championship.
The First Nations word for Squamish is Sḵwx̱wú7mes. Squamish is a loose English adaption meaning “Mother of the Wind”. With consistent afternoon thermal winds, glacial fed brackiwsh water, beautiful rugged mountains, and waterfalls make the area the perfect site for this event.
We look forward to hosting the Optimist Sailors, their coaches and families this summer, and promise to create a memorable event for all!
