Wild sailing in Squamish B.C.

YouTube - SOAR Porteau Cove Squamish Yacht Race

This is from the Squamish Yatch club just down from where I moor. They had their Annual Regatta back in the first week in August and they have some Incredible Video on their site from past regatta's.

Here is their web site address where you can find more video

Click on SOAR 2010 in the center of the page or go to video on the left for past races

enjoy

My old sailing grounds... almost a typical summer afternoon there.

Great conditions, plenty of wind but flat water. This has been posted here before, but it always a good view....

Don't worry about it dawg - when it's this good, it deserves a second view.

I didn't see it the first time, so I appreciate the double post. That sure was an expensive day!

I wish I had been able to join them there for it. (work and a blown head gasket dragged me away) But I am hoping next year to be in it.

Smaller and heavier built spinnakers would have helped there.
