AYC Victoria Harbor Splash Weekend, Aug 4-7, 2017

Here is what awaits cruisers in Victoria’s inner harbor for this great long weekend in August:

The sun sets to the sounds of the Victoria Symphony performing for a hushed crowd gathered on the shores around the Inner Harbour. Kayaks and dinghies bob around the barge upon which the Symphony plays. The sky darkens, the city lights warm the horizon, and eventually the unmistakable notes of Tchaikovsky’s 1812 Overture mark the beginning of the end of this spectacular concert on the water. The music builds, reaches its crescendo when the cannons explode and the sky erupts into fireworks! Sunday, Aug. 6 is concert night.

Reservations for the AYC group are full at present. However, AYCers wanting to join the fun can contact the Greater Victoria Harbor Authority and ask to be put on their waiting list. The link is provide below. Be sure to indicate you want to be added to the Anacortes Yacht Club group is space allows. Or you can check out alternative moorage at Oak Bay or other nearby marinas. 

More details to be provided as the dates draw near. Cruise chairs: Angela and Stuart Currie.
