The Jericho Wavechaser takes place out of the Jericho Sailing Centre off the Spanish Bank beaches of Vancouver’s south shore.
The race series is run by volunteers from Jericho’s paddling community and is only $5 for all paddling classes – no charge for members of the Jericho Sailing Centre Association (annual membership $99). There is a fantastic after race BBQ available to all participants for $5.
More and more paddlers are discovering how fun the waters off Jericho can be and what an amazing venue the centre is. There is also something about the beach atmosphere that makes the location feel like the Hawaii of Canada. We will have a safety boat at each race and we keep the race course a surprise! Actually, we try to optimize each race to take advantage of the best bumps we can get.
The 2015 Jericho Wavechaser Paddle Series is held on every 2nd Thursday with the next one scheduled for July 2. For more info paddle over to the Wavechaser webpage.
