A terrific day to be on the beach!
May 29, 2005

A great time was had by everyone who attended this years Vancouver Kayak Builders Meet at the Beach. The weather couldn't have been better -- we got a reprieve from the scorching previous day with temps that were a bit lower and no blazing sun.

About 25 boats were on display and there were quite a number of spectators, and lots of talk about building and paddling.

The last of the boats were loaded up around 3:00, and everyone headed up to Orca Boats for a really excellent salmon barbeque hosted by Rod and his wife Joanne. It was really nice to have the opportunity to meet some new people and to socialize with several old friends. Thanks to everyone who showed up and I hope that we'll see even more boats out next year.

I'd also like to extend a big thank you to Rod and Joanne Tait for hosting this event.
