BC Championships-Challenge West package

Volunteer sign-up sheet here


There have been a couple of questions regarding composite crews for junior athletes.  Please see explanation below in event composite entries are submitted.

The term "composite entry" is used to describe any crew which includes athletes from more than  one club. 

Composite crews are permitted at Challenge West/BC Championships Regatta. Athletes in a composite crew must each wear the uniform of the club with whom they are registered. Note that athletes may not race for more than one club at the same regatta..

The entry process is slightly different for composite crews because each rower's affiliation (team, club, organization, etc.) must be indicated on the entry form. Please click here for instructions on submitting composite entries

We just want to give our mainland visitors a head's up for next weekend July 12-14.  A scout jamoboree near Victoria will be concluding and BC Ferries has issued a statement concerning the possibility of higher vehicle and passenger volumes.

"In a written statement, BC Ferries said, “Customers who plan to travel with a vehicle during these popular sailing times are advised to make a reservation. Bookings can be made online at People travelling without a reservation should plan to arrive at the terminal 45-60 minutes early to improve chances of making their anticipated sailing. Alternatively, travelling later in the afternoon may be less busy
