In 2008, Paul DeCapua, Jerry Moulton and I had the brilliant idea to begin a summer sailboat race series hosted by BCYC. Thirteen years later, the Taco Tuesday Series is still going strong. As well as managing the race course, the club also hosts the fabulous Mexican buffet and after-race party, open to all members and racers. BCYC averages 75-100 sailors each week, with 18 PHRF boats and 26 Harbor 20s competing this year in the 16-week series.

Since the beginning, it has been a true joy to work with Paul. He and the race committee volunteers make up the great team that keeps the race moving along (wind permitting). Tammy Boivin, Linda Buchanan, Wendy Kerr and I keep the fun times going with the after-race raffle. So much work goes into this series. Thanks to the many people who make Taco Tuesday a huge success!
