Open Racing

Open Racing 

Kelowna Yacht Club is home to the most active racing program on Okanagan Lake. Club races are held weekly throughout the year. Competitors feel that the Club is perfectly situated to take advantage of the prevailing winds and currents are usually insignificant. Kelowna Yacht Club is affiliated with BC Sailing and uses the PHRF scoring system.

The “come within hail” flag will be displayed and it will be the responsibility of the skipper to hail his/her sail number prior to the first warning signal. Failing to do so may result in DNS. The race committee is made up of volunteers and it is often difficult to spot and record all boats before the start.
