Viking Sailing Club 50th Anniversary Celebration at JSCA

VSC 50th Anniversary Banner

Did you know that the Viking Sailing Club is celebrating 50 years this year and is the longest standing sailing co-op in BC?

Join us for our 50th Anniversary Gala on Saturday, June 24, 2017 at the Jericho Sailing Centre as we celebrate our legacy and our future. We will kick-off the evening with opening remarks from Councillor Andrea Reimer, Park Board Commisioner Sarah Kirby-Yung, and Councillor and Deputy Major Raymond Louie, and our Commodore, Petra Hoerrmann. Opening remarks will be followed by a champagne toast and the opening of our 25 year old time capsule.

A catered dinner will be provided for all advanced ticket holders, and the bar will feature our signature Viking Spirit cocktail. After dinner we will be hosting our Viking Spirit contests for Barbarian Beard and Shield Maiden’s Arm Wrestling Match Champions, and will challenge Vikings to out-dance each other on the dance floor.

Don’t miss out on this opportunity to celebrate 50 years of Viking sailing. Join us on June 24, 2017 to drink like Vikings do, pillage the dance floor and celebrate our mark on the sailing community both at Jericho and worldwide!

Location: Upstairs at the Jericho Sailing Centre, 1300 Discovery Street in Vancouver, B.C.
