TCYC English Bay Scramble
Tiddly Cove’s annual English Bay Scramble is the most interesting and popular sailboat race in Vancouver, and perhaps in the world. Do not argue with us! Skippers and crews competing in the Scramble are the most highly regarded sailors we know, and perhaps that one could meet, ever.
The English Bay Scramble is a unique race where tacticians have free rein in how the marks are rounded, even which way to cross the start line. It delivers a unique combination of:
- the strategic challenges of a long distance race (varying sea states, winds, tides)
- the accessibility of English Bay (no long delivery trips required)
- a legendary after-party! (BBQ, music and prizes)
- an open, low-intensity format, suitable to sailors of all experience levels (and budgets!)
Details on racing can be found on the website somewhere, but we suspect you are really interested in the party following racing. “What?” you may ask, somewhat incredulously, “Some of the most challenging and fun racing ever, in the most beautiful place in the world AND there is a party afterwards!?”
