Fathers Day Cruise 2023

Following is an update from Fleet Captain, Dave Corman

Just to keep everyone up to date on the upcoming Father’s day weekend cruise.  I have checked 6 different weather stations, all are forecasting rain for Saturday June 17th.  Therefore, we are implementing our plan B for the entertainment Saturday evening.  Rather than rafting up our dinghies around a boat stage in Clam Bay, Telegraph Harbour Marina will allow us  to use their facilities to hold an informal music concert.

I have booked a slip with them for the evening of the 17th. If you wish to do the same, go to their website, Telegraphharbour.com and make a reservation indicating you are with the Silva Bay Yacht Club. However, if you wish to anchor out (Clam bay or other site) and dinghy into the marina that is an option as well. The nautical twilight is from 3:25-23:08 hrs and a high tide of 3.77m is at 19:55 hrs and a low of 3.24m at 23:58 hrs.  The cut between Thetis and Penelakut should have plenty of water to bring a dinghy thru.  Telegraph mentioned that there is a small dinghy wharf at Cedar Beach Pizza on the north end of Clam Bay (we are ordering Pizza Saturday, check out the menu at cedar-beach.com).  It may be possible to tie up your dinghy to their wharf and Telegraph could bus people to the marina.  This is an option I will be confirming in the next few days

Otherwise we will see all  the cruisers at Princess Cove on Wallace Island on the 15th of June.  Slack at Gabriola passage is at 9 am and 4 pm,
