HELLY HANSENCHESTER RACE WEEK AUGUST 10 to 13, 2022

And It's A Wrap!

Our annual Chester Race Week is a wrap!

Under the direction of our On-Water Chair Pat Nelder and PRO Dan Conrod, we ran 77 races for 117 boats! Congrats to all competitors! Check the link button on the right for RESULTS.

It was brilliant to have all the competitors and old friends come together again on the water and off.

There are so many people and organizations to THANK for making our regatta a success. It takes a community that includes the competitors, race committee & officials, volunteers, our sponsor partners, CYC staff and the Village of Chester.

Thanks to ALL of our sponsors, especially our title sponsor, Helly Hansen, and our platinum sponsors, Engel and Völkers, ALL EV-Steele Auto Group, and The Moorings/Sunsail.

The contribution from all our volunteers was immense! Our regatta event would not be possible without the hard-working and dedicated volunteers whose generosity allows the sailors and spectators alike to come enjoy our regatta.

Thank you to all the volunteers who donate their time to Helly Hansen Chester Race Week for on-water and on-land operations that make our special event  ‘one of the largest keelboat regattas in Canada.’   Our sincerest gratitude and appreciation for all of the volunteer efforts!

We look forward to next year!
