This post was originally placed as an add-on to the thread started in the Bilge, but my thinking is that it will get lost between the controversy regarding US policy in Iraq and how to prepare sea cucumbers for best flavor, so I'm re-starting it as it's own thread.
I've got quite a few images to get up, but will start with these as teasers. I'll try to supply as much detail as I can on the people and of the boats, but it will be a few days before it's all up. Hope this wets the appetite.
Old boats and Victoria; it happens every year. You should be there next time!
Bob Shaw's dingys attracted alot of attention. More on those later.
Eric Jesperson's newly restored 6 meter; an award winner, also to be continued.
The fleet gathering for the sail-past. More coming.
The HMCS Oriole's Sunset Ceremony.
Trekka, Victoria's own Round the World Love Boat
(unflattering image of an icon!)
Deb and Dave (Nanoose) with Lindy (on the left). Lucky Guy!
Taken Sunday on Rita.
