April 16th Spring Lunch Cruise

18 brave souls showed up promptly at 10:00 raring to go in spite of the 3 degree temperatures and snow at 08:00 am. Their courage was rewarded with sunny skies and brisk breeze and wonderful sailing in paradise. The skippers and crew sailed over to Van Anda, hiked up the hill to the Texada Inn and enjoyed the ambiance and hospitality of Dan and Mariane De Vita. After lunch, the crews made their way back to the harbour for an awesome return sail to Powell River. What a wonderful start to the cruising season. Thanks skippers for hosting club members on you boats.
