SOAR Regatta

The Sea to Sky's Best Kept Secret

Some say that it is the best-kept secret on the West Coast, but it is definitely the regatta with the most consistent winds, most spectacular venue, and voted the best party in the Pacific Northwest.

Race Schedule

Friday, July 19

Bernie Agg Memorial Inflow Race (9 nm ) 4:00 PM

Start your weekend with excitement! Cut your delivery time and race the downwind sprint in building winds from Porteau Cove to Squamish Harbour. Celebrate your arrival with beers at the Valhalla Pure Post Race Dock Party.

Saturday, July 20

The Evolution Sails Distance Race (24 nm or 18 nm) 11:00 AM

The main event! Your choice of short or long course, both out to Defense Islands and back with additional laps in the windy harbour. Watch out for those wild wind shifts and crazy current; they can make or break your day! Be careful what you do, because it will get caught on our professional race video… the good and bad!

Live Music at the Squamish Yacht Club 8:00 PM

SOAR 2019 video screening 9:00 PM (approximate) 

Sunday, July 21

A-Frame Brewing Hangover Outflow Race (9 nm) 10:00 AM
