2019 BBYC Danginn - NoR.pdf

Please note that DYC has offered to provide slips for visiting racers during Danginn Race.  

October 12, 2019 will mark the 57th annual Danginn, a tradition at BBYC since 1962.  The Danginn Bowl was donated to the Bedford Basin Yacht Club in recognition of the hospitality received by Dan Ludwig and his girlfriend Virginia Higgins, owners of the 257 foot yacht, Danginn.  They spent the majority of that summer in the Bedford Inner Basin, entertaining celebrities and dignitaries such as former American President Harry Truman, all arriving at BBYC to board the Danginn.  

Unfortunately BBYC has recently suffered flood damage to our building and we will be unable to host the 2019 Danginn as we have done for 56 years.  This year the tradition will continue thanks to the hospitality of our friends and neighbours at Dartmouth Yacht Club.  DYC has graciously offered BBYC their facilities to hold this year's race for the Danginn.

Please join BBYC and DYC on October 12, 2019 for what always promises to be a great day on the water, followed by an awards presentation like no other.

Online registration is available at the following link, or onsite at DYC as detailed in the NOR: 


Since BBYC will not have POS access at the Danginn, entry fees can be paid onsite at DYC in the form of cash or cheque, or any time by e-transfer to (password danginn)

For more information on the history of the Danginn, follow this link to a 2017 article in Canadian Yachting, written by Rob Dunbar.
