Members of the Bowen Island Yacht Club took to Mannion Bay on a grey Saturday morning on May 6 to take part in the traditional Sail Past of the club Commodore that marks the start of the club’s season.
Seven boats took part in the ceremony, waving and saluting to Simon Fowler aboard the NautiNess, who had managed to find a good spot in Mannion Bay despite operating with a relatively rookie sea crew.
After the boats returned from the bay it was off to Doc Morgan's for a spy-themed party. Most participants donned outfits based off the world’s most famous spy, the legendary James Bond himself, and enjoyed games and costume contests organized by the club.
Now that the season is underway, BIYC turns its attention toward their biggest event of the year, the Round Bowen Race, which takes place Saturday, June 10.
