Canadian Championship info
The Kitsilano Yacht Club and Canadian 5O5 Fleet 1, with support from Squamish Yacht Club and West Vancouver Yacht Club, will host the 2016 5O5 Canadian Championships in Squamish Harbour at the head of Howe Sound. Boats can be launched and stored near the Squamish Yacht Club. The club is located on Logger Lane along the Mamquam Blind Channel in Squamish. Amenities and accommodation are within easy walking distance of the launching area. Racing will be conducted in Squamish Harbour. Please be advised that the waters of Squamish Harbour are fed by rivers whose source was, only hours earlier, glaciers. Wetsuits are highly recommended for thermal protection. Hopefully, the famous Squamish inflow breezes that have given this area a fine reputation as a good venue for wind sports will be active for this event. The starting area will likely be no more than a 15-20 minute sail from the launch area. Launching will be challenging in low tide, but recovery will be easy at high water.
