Please join us for the Vice Commodore’s Cruise to Ganges on Salt Spring Island BC for the Memorial Day weekend, May 25-28. Consider arriving on Thursday May 24th to get a jump on the weekend fun and join others for impromptu gatherings. More information on the Ganges Marina at: https://www.gangesmarina.com/
Friday night will begin with a patriotic-themed docktail party. Wear your red, white and blue, and bring your favorite hearty hors d’oeuvres to share and a beverage. Saturday, Sunday and Monday mornings we will start our days with coffee and pastries at the Party Barge. During the day on Saturday you’re on your own to enjoy the Farmers’ Market, visit local wineries, galleries or restaurants, hike, play golf, or just relax on your boat. Saturday evening we will have a potluck BBQ dinner on the dock. Bring something to cook on the barbie and a side dish to share. (You can get groceries at Thrifty’s in Ganges.) Sunday afternoon the popular Barley Brothers and Kate, an acoustics bluegrass trio, will be playing for us on the dock, followed by a pizza and salad dinner (so the galley slaves don’t have to cook).
