The community of Sointula is hosting its first sailing regatta to celebrate Canada Day.

Sail boaters, power boaters and landlubbers are all invited to celebrate Canada Day on Malcolm Island June 30-July 2.

The event kicks off at the Whales Rub Pub on Saturday June 30 in the evening. Participants will receive course details followed by music and dance.

On Canada Day, the event will move to the waterfront, with breakfast and a Coast Guard Auxiliary display. A fun race for sailboats starts at 1 p.m., followed by a power boat predicted log race at 1:30 p.m. Other events include an afternoon beer garden, a large birthday cake, prizes, and dragon boat rides.

On Monday, the celebrations continue with bird watching, museum tours, and a blacksmithing demonstration.

All proceeds of this event will be donated to the Malcolm Island Lions Club’s Friends In Need Now Fund. This fund is used to provide assistance for medical travel expenses.
