The 24th Annual CRISR

July 14-17, 2023

May 2 Update:

The 2023 Captain Raynaud International Schooner Race (CRISR) details are getting nailed down!


The race will start Friday, July 14, just outside of Victoria! There will be a pre-race social gathering in Victoria the evening of the 13th, and captain's meeting the morning of the 14th.


Leg 1, July 14: Victoria to South Pender Island, overnight at Otter Cove

Leg 2, July 15: Otter Cove to Montague Harbour, overnight at Montague

July 16: Buddy sailing, overnight at Ganges Harbour

Leg 3, July 17: Ganges Harbour to Narvaez Bay, overnight at Narvaez

As always, the race rules are simple: 

You must have a schooner rig to participate

We WILL have classes this year! Robert D'Arcy on the Schooner Martha will be in charge of divisions

The winning vessel gets to keep/display/zealously guard the gorgeous CRISR trophy for a year

Hitting other vessels or impeding commercial traffic is prohibited

Protests will be ignored

If you’re going to cheat, at least be creative!


There will be burgees for participating vessels and prizes for each class! Donations will be cheerfully accepted to offset the costs since this race is funded entirely out of pocket by the "Race Committee" (me).


Zodiac will be hosting a post-race party and potluck for all participating crews. This event will occur on the Zodiac the evening of the 17th.
