Symphony Splash 2017
This year, the Club decided to do something a little different. Organized with the Greater Victoria Harbour Authority, RVYC was able to create a private booking in the inner harbour for RVYC members to enjoy the Symphony Splash and BC Day long weekend downtown.
The Club was able to reserve G & F docks, which were located only one dock away from the edge of the left side of the marina (when looking from the Empress). On Saturday evening, Marianne and David Scott organized an informal pot luck at 5:30 pm for everyone to attend. The members were excited to participate and chat on the docks. On Sunday evening, the members were located right behind the main stage and had crystal clear sound eminating towards them throughout the evening.
There were a couple of boats that decided to tie up a little further away on C dock, which was no problem to organize. We saw a total of 13 RVYC boats attend, with plenty of family and friends joining the members on the docks for libations, food and good times.

We are currently speaking with the GVHA to book again for next year, so watch out for notifications to get your reservation request in!
