Wednesday Night Racing is back!

GYC's famed Wednesday Night Racing series is back starting Wednesday July 22nd, 2020 with a slightly shortened event this year that includes a three race finale on Saturday, September 5th. We've received the go-ahead from Sail Manitoba, the Manitoba Emergency Coordination Centre, and Sport Manitoba. 

The plan is to have the Skipper's meeting on the deck at 6 pm with first start to go at 7 pm.

The NOR and SI's are posted below. Make sure to read through them carefully before you hit the water.

This year Registration will be done electronically and must be completed before your first race. No Registration, No Pay, No Sail! Boat Registration is $79.75

Make sure that you register the maximum crew contingent that you wish to sail with. See the NOR and determine how many crew you wish to register.) GYC Memberships are mandatory for all crew equal to your Maximum Crew Contingent.

If your regular crew member is not a Senior member of  GYC, a GYC Wednesday Night Racing Member (WNR) or a member of Sail Canada, a membership must be taken out. This makes your crew member a WNR member, a Sail Man member and a Sail Can member. The cost is the same as last year and is $78.75.

If you are already a GYC member you don’t have to pay this fee. If you are member with another club subtract $35 from this fee. Please include all the contact info requested on the Crew Registration form as we want to send regular emails to your crew.

Leukemia Cup August 15, 2020

Thank you for your interest in the 10th Annual Gimli Yacht Club (GYC) Leukemia Cup, benefiting The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society of Canada (LLSC). To date the GYC has raised over $50,000 towards this worthy cause. Remember you don’t have to be sailing
or at the club to participate.


Registration
With COVID19 in mind we want to use this website to handle all donations, registration, dinner tickets and T-Shirt sales remotely. Although we won’t turn you away please register on line. Simply put, we would like a $20 tax deductible registration for each person on your boat or on your team.

Please register at https://www.eventbrite.ca/e/gimli-leukemia-cup-regatta-registration-115262238458

This year Danny’s Whole Hog is catering our socially distant dinner at $20 a ticket. We have a 10th Anniversary Limited Edition T-Shirt available at $20 a shirt. All items can be booked on the website.

NB: Please note that in the event that we have to cancel the race or the dinner only the net dinner ticket price will be refunded. All net registration, donations and T-Shirt monies will still be donated to the Leukemia Lymphoma Society. Please note that there is a fee for all transactions.


Prizes
We are again looking for prizes and awards for all participants. We will have an on line auction run by Givergy.com so that regardless where you are you can still participate and have fun. To date Bruce’s Marine, Dr. Ross Moore Optician, Winnipeg Beach Yoga, Jack Cordero, 529 and the Leukemia Lymphoma Society have all donated some wonderful awards and prizes for the auction. Go to the auction site and take a look. The auction site will be posted at a later date.
