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.
