For the Sailors and Boat Lovers #1: Cowichan Bay Regatta from My Deck

(That is the front deck of the house not my boat.)

Every year on BC Day weekend we are treated to a major sailing event that we can watch from our front deck. The Cow Bay Regatta as it is known draws hundreds of sailors on seventy to a hundred boats. They come from all around southern BC and northern Wa. There is constant action to watch with a new race starting every few minutes on Saturday and Sunday.

Here are a few shots I took this afternoon.

In the last photo a small boat class is on the return leg (sailing right to left) and is passing through a class of larger boats (sailing left to right). It gets pretty hectic out there sometimes and you can hear the shouts of “Starboard!” often on the deck.

Thanks for looking
