Every year the Royal Canadian Sea Cadets across the country have a national sailing regatta hosted at the Royal Military College in Kingston, Ontario. Before competing at the final event in Kingston, cadets from every region must qualify at the regional regatta to move forward. This year the regional event for British Columbia is hosted at the “South Vancouver Island Cadet Nautical Training Site” in Esquimalt Harbour, and out of the 40 sailors that compete, only 20 can qualify in the Provincial Qualifier so that they may participate in the National Qualifier next spring, and finally the best 8 sailors will be sent to Kingston in the summer to represent the Pacific region.

This year the Provincial Qualifier had strong breeze in the first day providing very challenging and exciting 15 knot sailing. The following day we had beautiful sunshine and steady 5-8 knots of wind. Please enjoy the photo album in the link below, photos taken by Vassili Angelblazer.
