Seattle Area Racing Calendar 2023

Happy 2023, the SARC is here, let’s go sailing!

Below, you’ll find our annual racing calendar — a smorgasbord of opportunities for fun, competition, camaraderie, and adventure around the Pacific Northwest. The calendar includes 325 events hosted by more than 75 different clubs and organizers around Washington, Oregon, and British Columbia.

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 to be 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.
