Posted: Ron on Meander @ Sat Mar 18, 2017 10:48 pm
One again the Powell River C-Brats: Ron and Anne (Meander), Greg and Flora (Reel Knotty) and Steve and Marnie (Lily Pad) would like to extend our invitation to all C-Brats, former C-Brats, and C-Brat wannabes to join us in Powell River BC, July 14 - 16.
If you didn't make it to last years PRCBGT, Powell River is located on the mainland of BC on the east side of the Salish Sea (Georgia Straight) across from Comox. There is no direct road access to Powell River, so it is accessed by ferry or a better yet use that wonderful C-Dory to check out a great new cruising area.
Powell River, population of about 13,000, has a nice marina, good stores for food provisioning, marine stores, golf course and it is about an hours cruise from Desolation Sound marine park, 5-6hrs to Princess Louisa marine park and, about 6-8 hours from the border, with lots of great anchoring or marina stops on the way if desired. Stop in at the Gulf Islands, Vancouver, Smuggler Cove, Pender Harbour or Jedidiah Island, just to mention a few.
July weather is usually calm and sunny so we are hoping for less wind this year. Come for the CBGT and stay to cruise some of these great areas either heading home or on your way up.
For BC and other Canadian C-Brats come visit a new area or return for a visit to Powell River to meet with C-Brat friends new and old.
Fishing has been good in our area in the last few years and hopefully it will continue to be good this year.
For added entertainment this year the PRCBGT will be held during the weekend of the
Powell River Loggers Sports If you've never been to a Loggers Sports event before this a great chance to expand your cultural horizons.
Mark July 14-16 on your cruising calendars and come and join us to celebrate C-Dory's and C-Brats, enjoy good food, meet friends new and old and enjoy cruising in this beautiful area.
A event sign up sheet and more details will be added in the coming weeks.
