Start: 1030 hrs. The start will be in the same area as the previous finish.
Finish: The finish is right in Hardy Bay off the Government dock in downtown Port Hardy. The race committee motorhome will be on station on the Government Dock. This is an excellent spot to watch “panic” spinnaker takedowns.
Moorage: Moorage is “hosted” at the “Summer Floats” adjacent to the Government Dock, at the foot of Granville St., courtesy of the District of Port Hardy; see this link for a map of the town and other information - www.ph-chamber.bc.ca/map4.html
Facilities: Fuel is available however there is no shore power on these docks and water is at the head of the dock. Shower facilities and a refreshing swim are provided courtesy of the District of Port Hardy at the Swimming Complex a short walk away. Laundry and shopping are close by.
Awards Reception: Awards and BBQ at the head of the dock in Carrot Park.
Festivities: The Mayor of Port Hardy, Harry Mose, and District Administrator, Rick Davidge, have once again planned some great family entertainment, mostly with a native theme, in Carrot Park.
Special Notes: Stock up on provisions at Save On Foods as Winter Harbour has very limited selection. Next stop for provisioning is Ucluelet.
