2024 Women’s Regatta



JULY 12 – 14, 2023


4111 Gellatly Road


Join us to Celebrate the 15th Annual Okanagan Women’s Regatta to be held at the West Kelowna Yacht Club located on beautiful Okanagan Lake.

  1. The regatta will be governed by the rules as defined in The Racing Rules of Sailing 2021-2024, the Prescriptions of Canada and the Rules and Regulations of Class Associations.
  2. The regatta is open to all sailboats with keels, helmed and crewed by women. One male coach is allowed but may not physically assist.
  3. Registration is available here on Regatta Network.   Each participant needs to register separately.  The fees are paid via credit card when you submit your registration, storefront selections and proceed to checkout on Regatta Network.
  4. Each skipper must show proof of $2,000,000 liability insurance. An onboard cell phone number is also required. VHF radios are recommended.
  5. Depending on the number of entrants we hope to have 2 fleets:
    • PHRF fleet women-only crew
    • PHRF fleet with one or more coaches on board
        The scoring system for the PHRF fleet is PHRF – BC time on time. Boats should have a current BC Sailing PHRF Certificate, or a PHRF will be assigned by the race committee.  Races and scoring will be in accordance with the current Sail Canada Rules of Sailing and that Rule A5.3 applies.
  6. Low point scoring system will be used, with 1 throw out for 4 races and 2 throw outs for 8 races or more completed.
  7. Printed sailing instructions and course sheets will be available by 5 pm on Friday, July 12, 2024, at the registration desk.
