The Classic Boat Festival in Victoria was a great opportunity to experience the beauty of wooden boats.
I didn’t venture far aboard Rainbird this summer but I certainly made the best of our spectacular weather. Here are a few interesting boats I passed during my travels. I know nothing about the history of these vessels but their uniqueness caught my eye.
Beautiful strip-planked Wildwood, built on Vancouver Island, seen here in Maple Bay, on her way to the Victoria Classic Boat Festival.
