Polar Bear Series

Have a boat and are new to racing? No problem – this series is a great way for beginner skippers to get out on the water and into racing.

Don’t have a boat but still want to race? Perhaps you’re a member of one of the other sections and want to try your hand at sailing? We’ll find a ride for you – Lots of boats are looking for crew and rookies are certainly welcome! Email VRC’s Fleet Captain and they will set you up with a boat.

Looking for crew? Email VRC’s Fleet Captain with how many crew you’re looking for and what sort of libation your crew should bring.

Have more questions or wish to meet skippers and crew in person before the series? Attend VRC’s Rookie Racing Seminar on Tuesday, October 22, 2024 @1900 hours (Doors open @1830 hours) at the club in the Trophy Lounge.
