Well the Gulf islands Pirate Regatta was a great success, with over 77 participants and many different Vessels .
We Had boats come from as far away as Esquimalt ,Cordova Bay, Pender island, and Saltspring island.
For those that don’t know , the Pirates Regatta is an event designed for families and friends to dress up and play on the water .
The course is very loose and is designed so all vessels have equal opportunity to win one of our coveted trophies .
Boats who finish the course, finish the course at a specific time so its designed to accommodate all vessels and provide everyone with a photo finish .
The meeting at the end of the race is where the real fun is , where each ships crew puts their arguments forward in the form of a skit , song or winded tale , then the other crews vote which ship wins what trophy .
Total awesomeness (pewter sailing ship) was awarded to Nanoo

Best theatrics (oscar ) was earned by Alena
Enthusiasm (silver bowl) was earned by Soluna
best scaly wags (wooden fist with protruding finger) earned by Squall
