The Telus Van Isle 360 yacht race is a 580 nautical mile race circumnavigating wild & rugged Vancouver Island.
The race is run in a series of 10 legs & includes both inshore, offshore & overnight legs through some of the most challenging & beautiful waters on the planet.
The timing for the entire race is dictated by the currents through Seymour Narrows (just north of Campbell River). Seymour Narrows has some of the strongest currents in the world, at times reaching 16 knots. A northbound ebb early in the day through this area determines the dates for the race.
