June is spring cruise month. Many boaters head to Destination Sound to enjoy nature’s playground before the busy summer months. Others head to the Broughton Archipelago to explore dozens of islands and islets providing sheltered waters and anchorages. A few hardy boaters venture further—around Vancouver Island, to the central coast, or Barkley Sound and the Broken Group archipelago. BC waters beckon and Gibsons Yacht Club members enthusiastically respond.
After busy summers at home, GYC members once again hoist anchors and sails right after Labour Day and head out for a two-week cruise of the Gulf Islands. Visiting marinas like Telegraph Cove, Poet’s Cove, and Winter Cove, boaters also enjoy hiking, card games, horseshoe tournaments and, of course, barbecues on the shore.
