The Swiftsure International Yacht Race, May 29 and 30, is the premier long distance sailing race  in the Pacific Northwest and British Columbia area. Starting and ending in Victoria, BC, Swiftsure draws boats and sailors from California, Hawaii, New Zealand and even Russia. The nature of the course and the potential variety of sailing conditions provide an exacting review of seamanship. Swiftsure consists of nine races over four courses in the Strait of Juan de Fuca, including the Rosedale Rock (formally “Sookesure”) and “Classics” races.
