O'pen Bic Performance Racing Camp

August 24-26, 2011

CGRA and Vancouver Lake Sailing Club have joined forces to present this special three-day camp designed to help advancing Bic sailors hone their sailing, boat handling, and racing skills in preparation for the O'pen Bic UnRegatta and CIRC Gorge Regatta the following weekend in Cascade Locks. As always with O'pen Bic events, the emphasis will be on learning, safety, and fun!


The O'pen Bic Performance Racing Camp is three days of intense on- and off-the-water training with chalk talks, practice drills, racing, and lots of fun sailing. Coaching and drills will be tailored to sailors' needs, with a goal to provide a safe, fun learning experience for all participants. Clinic sailors are invited to join the CGRA beach barbeque and open sailing Thursday evening. Bring a sack lunch each day.

Registration & Fees:

Clinic fee: $165 includes three days of coaching, after-sailing snacks, and Thursday night barbeque. Reduced fee for VLSC members and qualifying CGRA scholarship applicants is $90 (students in need of financial assistance may apply for a CGRA Scholarship by checking the appropriate box on the registration form and presenting proof of participation in school lunch program).
