From August 20th to the 30th 2019, Pointe Claire Yacht Club will be hosting the 2019 International Fireball World Championship. Just ten months later, PCYC will be the home of the 2020 Shark Worlds. Elite racers will be coming to Montreal and our club from all over the globe. These events are wonderful opportunities to be part of world class competition, as sailors, race officials, volunteers and spectators.

PCYC is incredibly fortunate to have members who are internationally proven racers and officials. With a broad base of expertise to draw on, our club can organize successful world class events. The Fireball Worlds organizing team has commitments from PCYC members to provide race management, technical direction and to serve on the international jury.Witnessing all of this first hand will provide an exciting learning experience for club members.



We need our members to get involved in order to make these events as successful as possible.

As a competitor
If you are tempted to sail in a Fireball or a Shark, or both, come talk to the members of the fleet. We are always looking for people interested in sailing with us. Racing in a world championship is a thrilling experience and having two chances in two years is unlikely to come again any time soon.

As a volunteer
Major events need effort to succeed. Volunteers will be needed for:

HOUSING (billeting)
This is our biggest request. We want to make the world feel like family at PCYC. If you have a spare bedroom, or even room aboard a boat in the harbor and can accommodate visitors, please let us
know. Our goal is to offer billeting to anyone that wishes for their stay during the regatta

We are looking for people to help out with:

  • Registration
  • Sponsorship
  • Measurement
  • Race Committee
  • Shore organizers
  • Social team
  • Scoring
  • Transportation
  • Spectator boats

The more people involved, the easier the tasks, and the more fun for all.
