Your Novice crew can have an experienced steer.

Parking: Pay Parking is in effect and EasyPark monitors regularly! $3.50 per hour or $13 for the day. There is free parking out on NW Marine Drive but you will have to walk a couple of blocks to get to the Sailing Centre.

Spare Canoes: Most clubs that host OC6 Iron events need their canoes for their own crews. Therefore, all crews are responsible for securing their own canoes for Iron races. If you or your club cannot arrange a canoe for your crew, do not assume the host club can provide this. You may need to arrange for a canoe from another club. If you need to borrow a boat, we suggest that you post a message on the CORA Message Boards. The CORA web site also has a list of clubs with contact names. If you need to borrow a canoe, please note:
  1. Be prepared to deal with the club loaning the canoe. It is not up to race directors to do this for you.
  2. Clubs that loan canoes to other crews may ask for a rental fee or for assistance with the trailering costs. Discuss this in advance!
  3. Clubs loaning canoes are loaning something very dear to them. It is the crew/sterns responsibility to care for that canoe, to ensure that it is not damaged due to negligence or irresponsible behaviour. Any incidents that involve canoe damage are to be reported to the loaning club immediately so they can assess integrity of the canoe and any costs associated with the damage should be borne by borrowing crew.
  4. Do not assume that your canoe will be "ready to race" when you receive it from the loaning club. You and your crew are expected to help with canoe loading and unloading, as well as rigging and unrigging. If you do not know how to rig a canoe, tell them in advance. You can still participate in the effort and perhaps learn the process! This also goes for loading/unloading canoes off and on to trailers.
  5. If your plans change, and you no longer need to borrow a canoe, inform the loaning club ASAP. Loaning a canoe, especially trailering one, takes energy, time and money. Be responsible for this commitment. If you can't make the event, tell the loaning club well in advance.
