Women's Open Regatta (WOR)

Women Open Regatta – Saturday, August 8, 2020

I am excited to be working on the Women Skippers Race this year. Our goal for 2020 is to increase participation in the event, more boats = more fun! The race committee has been brainstorming about how to achieve this, and as a start, we have come up with these two ideas:

  1. Reintroduce the event as an Open
  2. Name change to Women’s Open Regatta

The Women Skippers Race has historically been an ‘open’ event, meaning an event open to other clubs & sailors on the lake.  Our intention this year is to invite other clubs to participate as we do in the QCYC Open. In order to promote our ‘open’ event, and in keeping with the times, we are going to rebrand as the Women’s Open Regatta. As is tradition at QCYC, our Women’s Open Regatta main rule will be to have a woman on the helm and will consist of one middle-distance race with an afterparty at the club. We will continue to explore new ideas as we look to create a day that is fun, a day that celebrates the sport of sailing for both novice & expert sailors, and a day that builds camaraderie. If anyone has an idea on how to make this a standout event at QCYC or if you would like to volunteer, please send me a note at:  [email protected]
