THIS WEEKEND: F18 Rumrunner Regatta August 9 & 10

There was a time when rumrunners avoided Jericho Beach like the plague.

During prohibition in the United States, the flying boats of the Jericho Beach Air Station often assisted Canada Customs in their quest to inhibit the illicit flow of demon alcohol to our teetotaler dominated, thirsty southern neighbours.

This weekend the tide turns and the rumrunners will be heading north with immunity as the Jericho Sailing Centre hosts the second annual F18 Rumrunner Regatta on the waters of English Bay off of Jericho Beach.
