Come Race Martin242s With Us On Vancouver’s Beautiful English Bay!

It’s a sunny Saturday, or warm summer evening…. 20+ Martin242s are lining up…..BOOM! goes the start signal, and you are underway.  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’, 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.  Women sailors love the boat for its ease of handling and effective sail controls.

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

Several boats in the Vancouver Fleet are looking for crew.  The 2018 racing calendar includes Wednesday evenings and 1-2 Saturdays each month, from May thru October.  If you are thinking of campaigning your own one-design boat in 2018, a number of  M242s  are on the market at a great value.  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.

Thursday evening March 15 is M242 Racing 2018 Info Nite.  Please join us if you would like to become a member of a boat’s regular crew, learn more about the M242 Fleet’s 2018 program or obtain info on boat ownership and boats for sale.  To reserve your place, sign up at:
