Commodore's Cruise: The Timbers, Bedwell Harbour  ::  Cruising & Dinners


Saturday, May 18 to Monday, May 20, 2019

At Timbers on Pender Island

Across from Poet's Cove by water or by road at 6901 Shark Road

The Commodore’s Cruise is a volunteer run event held every year on the May long weekend. This year the theme will be “Chilling Out” with friends and family. This Cruise is the biggest cruise of the year and is always wildly successful and fun.

Timbers is provided to our Club by hosts and Honorary Members Bob and Diane Conconi. The property has a heated outdoor pool, spacious grounds with some playground equipment, a gazebo with a fire pit and a drying shed, with a bathroom. It is located across from Beaumont Provincial Park where there are ample anchoring opportunities and park mooring buoys.

Moorage can also be reserved at Poet’s Cove by phoning (250) 629-2111. This is a very busy weekend so early registration is encouraged. RVYC will arrange day shuttle service from the anchorage or Poet’s Cove to the dinghy dock provided at Timbers.  As there are no cabins or camping sites available at Timbers, members wishing to drive over for the Cruise may wish to Google  “Pender Island Tourist accommodation” for appropriate recommendations.

This year we are encouraging self directed activities for those who don’t want to just veg out and enjoy the camaraderie of fellow cruisers. Options are hiking, arranging a golf game, using the Club kayaks and paddle boards which will be brought to Timbers, organizing teen or young family games, participating in the ducky race, joining a musical jam session in the evening, and the list goes on! It will be up to Members to decide what they wish to do.

 If you have any questions or wish to volunteer for anything please don’t hesitate to contact Ellie Conconi  - or Terry Costain –
