Start: 1100 hrs. Note the later start time due to the strong current. The starting area is in Deepwater Bay 12 miles north of Campbell River. The committee boat will be on station in Deepwater Bay on Quadra Island.
Seymour Narrows is the main shipping channel for all traffic heading to or coming from the North. The currents through Seymour Narrows are some of the strongest in the world at times getting up to 16 knots.
Finish: The finish is off Eden Point in Chancellor Channel. The race committee boat will be on station. Brisk Northwest winds are common this time of year and this is usually a fast leg.
Moorage: Moorage has been sponsored courtesy of the Pan Fish (Omega) Salmon Farm located approx. 1 nm. from the finish line in Chancellor Channel near Hardwicke Island. Assistance will be available to tie up at the pens.
Facilities: Other than safe, secure moorage and generous hospitality there are no facilities, washrooms or accommodations here and no shore access. Boats need to be totally self sufficient at this stop. Access to the site is by boat only.
Awards Reception/BBQ: The B.C. Salmon Farmers Association will be hosting a fabulous salmon and seafood BBQ on the site.
