August 13, 2021 - August 15, 2021

Hi everyone,

I’m happy to report we’ve got a solid turn-out for our upcoming cruise to Telegraph Harbour next weekend. With 7 boats confirmed, we’re looking forward to a fun-filled weekend on the water. See below for the proposed plan for the weekend.

Day/Time Activity Notes
Friday evening -Dockside social

-Bat Walk (wait for it..)

BYO Friday the 13th story to share…
Saturday am Island Market from 10-2pm Located 5 min walk from marina–baking, jams, jewelry, gift cards, glass work, vegetables, bread, & other artisan items
Saturday afternoon options -Trail hike/bike on Thetis (it’s hilly..)

-Group visit to Dionisio Provincial Park on Galiano

-Bocce tournament at marina

-Paddle (kayak/sup) outing

-Other options!?

Everyone is welcome to opt in/out for any of the planned activities. Plans can be confirmed on Saturday morning based on weather/interest etc.
Saturday evening -Group Dinner in outdoor Pavilion

-Team Trivia night

Due to COVID, we’ve opted to be cautious and forego potluck meals and the traditional Commodore’s brunch. Please bring your own food and drinks so we can all dine together in the pavilion.
Sunday morning -Coffee with the Commodore on the waterside dock Commodore Callum will be preparing his famous ‘secret blend’ Scottish coffee with freshly baked muffins to get your day started! Please bring your own mug.
Sunday afternoon Departure Safe sailing everyone!

If you have any suggestions or ideas for other group activities, please feel free to share/reply-all. I’ve also included some links to the island that may be of interest.

Boats and their folks:

  • Morning–Allan and Cathy
  • Mystic–Dave and Alison
  • Paprika–Murray and Judy
  • Paragon–Katy and crew (tentative)
  • Petrel–Jan and Zdenka
  • Ramble On–Conor and Heleen
  • Suete Deern–Callum and Elaine
  • Ventus–Tim and Gabriela

I believe we have 5 sailing vessels and 2 power boats attending with several members coming over on Saturday. If you’re interested in planning to cross the strait with another boat, feel free to reach out to the group. I’ll send another group email out on Aug 12 when we’ll have a better idea of the marine forecast.

Very much looking forward to seeing you all on our 1st Club Cruise in over 2 years!
