The planning and organization of the 5th Annual Sointula Canada Day Regatta is well under way.

Last year the weather was perfect, and the attendance nearly doubled for this event! 12 beautiful sailing vessels raced the exciting course. Some tense moments developed, as vessels raced around the final mark, and made for the finish line. The kid’s events proved a big success and the vendors were varied and unique. The marine swap table was a treasure chest of finds for boaters.

The pancake breakfast was huge success, and everyone roamed around the parking lot for hours afterwards listening to live entertainment all day. This year, Canada Day (July 1) falls on a Friday, and the event will be kicked off with a parking lot full of vendors, a pancake breakfast and day long entertainment. The traditional singing of “Oh Canada,” and cake cutting ceremony will take place at high noon. The sailing races will start shortly after.

Also in the works are some unique events for other attendees. The Sointula Dragon Boat will be on hand for rides and the Royal Canadian Marine Search and Rescue (Station 50) will be available to conduct free safety inspections. The Lion’s Club will be hosting a day long beer gardens and the Burger Barn will be offering up a delicious menu. So come early, and enjoy the friendly atmosphere of our beautiful harbor and village.
