This activity has been going on over 30 years on Canada Day in Sidney. The Slegg building supply donate $115 to each team. They go on and pick out their boat supplies and buy it at the store. Supplies are delivered at the end of Beacon Street. There is a time limit…must be ready to go at 4pm. No power tools are allowed..three team members to ride in the boat and a name. In front of the amphitheater the building begins. Then the boats are carried down to see glass beach and lined up. Microphone allows each to intro their team. Town Crier counts backwards from 10. All made it in water ..one kayaky boat took off and was the leader all the way ..Lots of fun.
