Hundreds of fans of the “classics” – boats and cars, that is – got up close to an impressive array of both at Burrard Yacht Club’s Classic Boat and Car Show June 8. Each year, the club invites owners of classic boats and mint collector cars to display their prized possessions on the club docks and grounds in a fundraiser for the Disabled Sailing Association of BC. This year’s edition drew 31 boats – including several Grand Banks, this year’s featured yacht – plus 43 classic cars, from glittering hot rods to meticulously maintained collector vehicles. A further 42 cars cruised through the show throughout the day.
BYC spokesperson Sheryl Dawson estimated attendance was up by about 50 percent over last year, and door admissions raised a best-ever total of more than $1,400 for the DSA. Show proceeds help support facilities and programs of the DSA’s Vancouver chapter which provides sailing programs and instruction to persons with significant physical disabilities.
