Olympic Torch comes to Sidney!

Olympic fever has begun. The highly anticipated kick-off of the Olympic torch relay begun outside the BC legislature building this morning, albeit 90 minutes late... Rough weather conditions en-route managed to delay the Canadian Forces airplane that was carrying the flame, but they did not dampen its spirit. Shortly after 1.30 p.m. today, the flame was carried down Beacon Avenue here in Sidney. Lots of supporters and well wishers came out to cheer along the procession, and join in the festivities. Island Cruising was there too to show our support for our Canadian athletes! We will have yachts available for charter out of Granville Island Marina next February, so if you are heading out to Vancouver for the Olympics, contact us to arrange for your accommodation on board one of our yachts.

Fair winds and calm seas,
