Thanks to everyone who came out for a wonderful 2014 Christmas Carol Cruise!
A total of 14 boats paraded from Porpoise Bay to Tuwanek and back on a crystal clear night perfect for hearing the lead ship’s carols ringing out over the Inlet. Sunshine Coast Salmon Enhancement Society provided hot chocolate and popcorn at Porpoise Bay Park, and there was a rippingly good bonfire down on the beach. Sandy Hook Beach was the second party up the shoreline, followed by Tuwanek, and Shora Marina over across the water from the Park caught the Cruise on the return to Porpoise Bay.
See you next year!

New! If you could donate some LED lights to boats for the night of the cruise, contact the webmaster – donations will be returned in good working order! Looking for themed lights – red & white for a Candy Cane theme….
Starting at 1800 hours – or 6pm for all you landlubbers – a parade of lighted boats will leave MacKenzie Marina and travel up Sechelt Inlet, passing by community get-togethers and bonfires at Porpoise Bay, Sandy Hook, and Shora Marina. The Lead Boat is once again the beloved Kinnard, under the helm of Captain Don MacKenzie and First Mate Diane. Bring a chair, flashlight and umbrella.
Note: for 2014 we are also looking for a partner vessel for our kayakers participating in the Christmas Carol Cruise. We need a safety spotter boat with a radio so they can participate safely and so the other boats in the Cruise can see them better – one way from boat launch to Porpoise Bay Provincial Park.
The viewing location is Porpoise Bay Provincial Park. Popcorn, coffee and hot chocolate are being provided by the Sunshine Coast Salmonid Enhancement Society (Chapman Creek Hatchery), and will be collecting non-perishable donations for the Sechelt Food Bank.
