Happy, Happy Swiftsure Weekend!


Swiftsure Weekend is here!
The 64th annual Swiftsure International Yacht Race starts this morning off the tip of Clover Point in Victoria...
With over 250 boats and up to 140 miles to sail, it is one of North America’s most challenging overnight offshore competitions.
What a sight!!

Lucky you! Those boats are beautiful and graceful and so elegant.

A beautiful scene. There is something about a sail boat (oh boy, I just wrote sale and then corrected it-we do love sales!) and to see so many of them must be very special. Enjoy!

How beautiful the boats look on Swiftsure weekend - makes me want to move back to Victoria and take a stroll down Dallas Rd! Thanks for this!
