Sailpast 2023

Location: JSCA – Viking Sailing Club area (NW Corner)
Start Time: 10:00
Date: 2023-06-24

Folks we are excited to announce that our annual Sailpast event will take place on June 24th at 10 AM this year. It promises to be one of the most enjoyable activities of the year, with plenty of fun to be had by all. We encourage all members to join us for the highlight of the sailing calendar.

We will serve a delicious BBQ salmon and a selection of veggies and corn, with salad and beverages available for purchase. As we come together to celebrate our love of sailing, we will also take a moment to acknowledge our readiness and capability to take to the sea, showing our respect to the Commander-in-Charge.

Before the Sailpast ceremony begins, our fleet will be ready for the sailing season, meeting to salute Tyra with water guns. We hope all our fellow Vikings and friends will join us at Sailpast and enjoy an afternoon of fun and dining together.
