Ken & Barbie Recap

Ken & Barbie / Racing / VRC

Sunday morning arrived far too early after the fantastic dock party celebrating the Georgia Stait Alliance Charity Regatta the night before. The sun was shining and once the Race Committee got some coffee, we were underway out to English Bay on a nice ebb tide.
