What could be simpler?

So what happened to 51 and 52? Those were the Pandemic Races, timed start with no start/finish boat, no clubhouse event afterward. We designated those as the 49½ and 49¾ Un-Shaw races, and the blow-out 50th Shaw was 2022, which makes the 2023 event the 53rd Annual and this year the 54th. Makes perfect sense, no?  


And why August 10th and not the first Saturday? 


Because it is not the first Saturday, but rather the Saturday following the Cowachin Bay Regatta, which is always the long weekend of British Columbia Day, which is always the first Monday of August. So..... August 10th this year. And Aug 9th in 2025, mark your calendar!
