THIS WEEKEND @ Jericho: Rum Runner Regatta
The annual Rum Runner regatta is bootlegging back to Jericho this weekend,
August 18 & 19.
There once was a time when rum runners avoided Jericho Beach like the plague. During prohibition in the United States, the flying boat crews 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 rum runners will be heading north with immunity as the Jericho Sailing Centre hosts the sixth annual Rum Runner Regatta on the waters of English Bay off of Jericho Beach. Long Distance Race on Saturday, Course Racing on Sunday; start times 1230H
