We would like to welcome all UBC sailboat students to the RNYC!
UBC sailboat is a team of engineering and computer science students who have joined together in an attempt to become the first group in the world to ever build and successfully sail an autonomous sailboat across the Atlantic Ocean from Newfoundland to Ireland!
Their autonomous sailboat, Ada, is located at the Opti Dock and will be undergoing testing out in the bay before her voyage.
At this time, launch could be within a week and you can track her progress at ubcsailbot.org.
It’s almost that time again, Sailors! Get your boats tuned up because we’re one week away from RACE WEEK 2016!
Race Week is an open event to all sailors who wish to come and participate. The annual Awards Dinner & Dance will be catered by Red Oak Catering and music will be provided by the Kelly-Ann Evans Band. Please register and get your tickets this coming Tuesday, August 16th with Lori Anderson, RNYC Manager.
