Seattle Area Racing Calendar 2022

Happy New Year, the SARC is here, let’s go sailing!

While the past few years may have taught us to take nothing for granted, we can expect a near-normal racing schedule in 2022! This notion brings hope and excitement beyond calculation for racers around the Salish Sea.

There’s plenty to be psyched about in the coming year. 2021 showed us that absence made the heart grow fonder, with attendance and enthusiasm for many events ticking up from pre-pandemic levels. From RS Aero AND Tasar World Championship Regattas; to the returns of Southern Straits, Swiftsure, and R2AK; to a pair of Hawaii races with more PNW participation than any year in recent memory — this calendar is chock full of possibility. More thrilling than any calendar event, though, is the prospect that we can once again unite as a regional racing community, re-joining our friends for sailing fun and freely attending events across the U.S./Canada border. I know I’m not alone when I say that I simply cannot wait to share the racecourse with my Canadian neighbors again.

Our heartfelt thanks, as always, goes out to the scores of committed folks who help us create this document, and to the advertisers who make this whole thing possible — they all support the racing community, please support them in the coming year!

We strive for this information as accurate as possible, but it’s still a good idea to keep up with updates on this page, in monthly issues of 48° North, and with the various events or race organizers.

We always thought the boating and sailing community needed a better events calendar to help the public know about the extraordinary number and variety of on-the-water and nautical events in Seattle, Portland, Vancouver, Victoria, and all the boaty harbors in between. This calendar is our solution, and we hope you find it fills that need. From sailboat races to swap meets, rendezvous to rallies, seminars to seafood fests, we look forward to seeing you out there!

Due to COVID-19, some events may have been cancelled or postponed. Please double check with event organizers before attending.
