Thank you SunCruiser Media for being a sponsor of the Okanagan Charity Regatta!
As an annual magazine, readers travelling by boat or car keep the SunCruiser guides close by and refer to them frequently during the year. The grid system, based on a one-minute line of Latitude and Longitude, is exclusive to SunCruiser. Readers use the grid system to mark their favourite fishing, crabbing, prawning, on shore attractions, SCUBA diving sites or rendezvous locations on the charts. SunCruiser Magazines contain shoreline and safety information. The guides become their reference manuals and are not discarded.
SunCruiser Media is committed to printing quality boating content that readers need. The magazine is divided into three separate publications, and each focuses on local content and events. Complete maps are included in each publication along with relevant information to make boating safer and more enjoyable. Get your copy at: suncruisermedia.com
The North Okanagan Sailing Association
The Okanagan Charity Regatta’s committee boat team will be mostly run by NOSA sailors. John Holmwood has been coming to meeting since January and they will be on the water for the 3 days of the regatta, timing and calculating results. We couldn’t do the regatta with out them!
The North Okanagan Sailing Association (NOSA) is a non-profit society dedicated to the
promotion of small boat, dinghy and catamaran sailing. We offer family and individual
memberships, Youth and Adult sailing lessons in the season, and regular Thursday night racing
for members and qualifying enrolled sailing students.
The NOSA Sailing School hosts local schools for sailing classes and can provide single-day
introductions to sailing. Our staff can be invited to schools to teach youth about boating safety
and safety around the lake.
NOSA is the only BC Interior venue for Navy cadet training with some 250 cadet youth attending
classes in spring and fall.
Many sailors at the Vernon Yacht Club, at one time learned to sail at NOSA.
Interested in learning to sail? Possibly become a NOSA member using our Boat-Share
program? Learn more at www.vernonsailing.com.
NOSA is located at 7813 Okanagan Landing Rd. in Vernon, hidden behind the Paddlewheel Park

Penticton Yacht Club
Unique to the Penticton Yacht Club and Marina is a highly competitive keelboat racing community, with events scheduled April through November. Each September on Labour Day Weekend, the Penticton Yacht Club’s Sailing Fleet hosts the Grand Prix Regatta. It’s a good thing sailors have all season to practice because Penticton has the best winds on Okanagan Lake and the race is not for the faint of heart.
There are many highlights to Penticton’s Regatta and the one that stands out the most is PYC’s Darren V. and his powerboat team welcoming sailors each year! Darren also sets up the best Lunch Barge on the lake with his pontoon boat ready and equipped with a burger station and all the trimmings plus the ice blender serving slushies on a hot September race! Thank you Penticton Yacht Club for donating towards each PYC boat that attends the Okanagan Charity Regatta!
