|THIS WEEKEND @ Jericho: Tasar BC's & North American Championships|
The Tasar is a hard chined, fully battened mono hull racing dinghy designed by Australian designer Frank Brathwaite who engineered the displacement so that the optimum crew weight was equal to the weight of the average woman plus the average man. So there will be a keen fleet of average folk from all over the continent exercising above average sailing skills in Vancouver's most popular double handed racing dinghy on the waves of English Bay Saturday & Sunday.
Registration is $30 NATA membership (if required) $10 . First start Saturday @ 1300H. First start Sunday @ 1100H.
For more info on the Tasar BC's NOR or contact Regatta Chair Guy Wall .
