Update on the FCRCC Spring Knockout Regatta and Refund Protocol

SUBJECT: Update on Knockout Regatta and Refund Protocol   Dear Racers, Last week, we sent out the communication advising that the FCRCC Knockout Regatta has been postponed until further notice. This has not changed. We are still working with the City of Vancouver and Transport Canada to determine an alternate date for our regatta. Since the communication, our club received some good news from viaSport in the form of a grant which will help cover some of our unrecoverable expenses. This has enabled us to make changes to the cancellation options provided previously. For those teams who are registered and […]

Updates from False Creek Racing Canoe Club

Dear members,   Thank you for working together to help reduce the spread of COVID-19.  This email is an update on FCRCC’s response to the pandemic and to government requests to implement social distancing.

SUBJECT: FCRCC Knockout Regatta – Postponed until further notice

Hello Racers, The FCRCC Knockout Regatta has been a favourite season opener race for many of us over the past 8 years.

It is with heavy hearts that we announce the postponement of our event for this year until further notice. For those teams who are registered and have paid for this year’s regatta, we will be issuing a cancellation protocol soon that […]

Notice to FCRCC members with personal boat storage at our club

    Dear member, For those members who have a private boat stored at FCRCC facilities at Alder Bay or the Burrard compound.
