Kokanee Cup (Short-Handed Sailing Series)

Kokanee Cup Series 2021

May 16, June 13, July 18, & Aug 15

The Short Handed Sailing Series was something we started in 2020 to allow us to continue getting out on the water and sailing during COVID-19. 

This event encourages some friendly racing and limits each boat to a maximum of three people (so you can come race with your COVID bubble). 

These races will be white sail only, unless there are enough boats and interest to justify two fleets.
