Trailer Parking

Please contact VCRC Club Manager, Brenda Taylor, (250-658-5331) for trailer parking directions. Trailers must be parked so that the towing vehicle is on hard ground (not on the grass). As a result trailer parking is limited to either side of the access road to the cement buildings (just south of the lower parking lot) and on the"high ground" at the east end of the grass, parallel to the highway.


Spectator and Participant Parking

Spectators and athletes may park in the 2 parking lots at Eagle Beach.

Please do not park adjacent to the boathouse (reserved for VRS coaches and Regatta Committee) or in the public boat launch parking lot. 

Additional parking is available off Jennings Lane (a few hundred metres south of the boathouse, vehicle access from Hwy 17) or at Hamsterly Beach (1.3 km north of the boathouse).  


Training Times
The race course will be open for training
