Video highlights of the 2010 show!

June 12th, 1000 - 1600

Hosted by the Burrard Yacht Club on location at 10 Gostick Place, North Vancouver.

Beautiful sunny warm weather greeted 20 classic yachts and almost 35 classic and custom cars for the 3rd annual Classic Boat and Car show at BYC. Several Classic Yachts from the USA participated and told your editor that “it was sure worthwhile coming to BYC for the event – we had a great time and really enjoyed the experience”. Friday night’s BBQ saw 160 members and participants enjoy burgers.

Saturday’s show attracted more attendance than the previous years’. 2 separate meals were enjoyed on Saturday Night (due to the number of participants). 80 members and guests on D-Float enjoyed a beautiful evening and a steak BBQ, and the participants in the show (110) enjoyed BBQ’s Pig and Chicken. At 2000 hrs the Keith Bennett Band started to play on the new Concrete breakwater, to approx. 100-150 members and guests. It was a beautiful evening and everyone enjoyed the spectacular view of Vancouver.
