This year is the 45th Annual running of the Royal Naval Sailing Association (RNSA) Singlehanded Race from Vancouver to Nanaimo and return. Over the years the race has seen singlehanded vessels ranging from 24 to 70 feet, from outright racers to cruisers, with the norm being a typical 25 to 40 foot cruiser/racer.

This two-day fun race weekend across Georgia Strait continues to remain popular and attracts many local racers, as well as everyday sailors who would like to test their skills and seamanship sailing singlehanded across the Strait.

The race starts on the Saturday, from the Point Grey Bell Buoy to Snake Island, and back on Sunday from Snake Island to the finish line at the Point Grey Bell Buoy.

The Nanaimo Yacht Club provides the venue for overnight moorage, and a social evening with a great buffet dinner, interim results and door prizes.

Many magnificent trophies are to be awarded during the Awards Night later in the year, including Best Overall, First over the Line, a Team Trophy, Novice Trophy (first timers), Old Salt Trophy (65 to 74), and Ancient Mariner Trophy (age 75 and over), and others.

Entry fee is $90.00 which includes moorage at NYC and dinner. Additional dinner guests are welcome and pay $30 for dinner. Participants can sponsor other boats boat that have not raced in the past three years and receive a $10 discount on their entry fee.

There will be an informal Skippers Meeting and Registration at False Creek Yacht Club on Wednesday, May 30th at 1900. Late registrations are accepted until 1900 Friday, June 1st .
