This signature UBC event is back and celebrating it’s 30th anniversary! With 300 teams and over 3000 competitors spread across the weekend, Day of the Longboat is a UBC tradition. Multiple competitions give you the freedom to build your team however you wish and compete at multiple levels. Race with your classmates and friends from around campus whether you met in residence, your faculty, greek chapter or other community. There are also heats specific for staff & faculty, UBC alumni, or community members. Not interested in boat racing? Come down for the beach festival or to cheer on your friends. There is something for everyone over the weekend including a free shuttle bus that runs from UBC to Jericho beach. Gather your team of 8-10 and register today at REGISTRATION DEADLINE is September 18th at 5 PM. Volunteer with us: Events like these would not take place without the enthusiasm and energy of students like you, who participate, but also the volunteers that make it run successfully.
