27th annual Vancouver Wooden Boat Festival
Ahoy there! Afloat and ashore there will be big boats and small boats, sail boats and power boats, fishing boats and tug boats, row boats and kayaks – a little something for everyone. Beware the “Buccaneers of the Black Fleet” roaming the site daily and up to maritime shenanigans! Learn to tie some knots, participate in kid's boat building, family boat building, sing some sea shanties and maritime ballads or partake in a Viking raid. There will be small boat races on Saturday and the “Spruce Cup” race for larger sailing vessels out on English Bay on Sunday afternoon. You will end up with a celebration of our North West Coast Maritime Heritage.
