2017 Bamse Cup Notice of Race





Club 420 (advanced and green fleets), Optimist (advanced and green fleets), Laser full rig, and Laser Radial

This regatta is part of Dartmouth Yacht Clubs Convoy Cup series, and will have an advanced fleet that will be raced in the Bedford Basin, while the beginner fleet will stay within Wright Cove. We will be doing our best to keep to normal hours for drop off and pick-up in order to keep the event logistically simple. 

We invite all CANSail 1 and 2 programs as well as any intro Opti and 420 programs to come compete in the green fleet. If there is any concerns on skill level or what fleet the sailors should be placed in, please arrive early on either Monday or Tuesday and we will help place them in the correct group.
