Vancouver Martin 242 Fleet Info Nite

Come Race Martin 242s On Vancouver’s Beautiful English Bay!

Do you like to sail? Are you competitive? Then come race Martin 242s with us!

It’s a sunny Saturday, or warm summer evening…. 20+ Martin242s are lining up…..BOOM! goes the start signal, and you are under way. Trim sails to perfection..hike out..monitor the compass for wind shifts...scan the race course and fleet to plan your next moves!

The M242 is a 24-foot, fast and nimble 4-person keelboat. She planes in 15 knots of breeze. As the boats are identical, performance comes down to teamwork, tactics and boat speed. Female sailors love the boat for its ease of handling and effective sail controls.

If you have mastered the basics of sailing and would like to try racing, or if you are an experienced competitive sailor, and would like to pair your skills with some of the Pacific Northwest’s top sailors, the Vancouver Martin242 Fleet is for you.  

Several boats in the Vancouver Fleet are looking for crew. The 2020 racing calendar includes Wednesday evenings and 1-2 Saturdays or weekends each month, from May through October. And we are not just about racing: we have a program of fun social events throughout the season!  A great way to meet new people.
