Canada Day Potluck Dinner & Light Parade

We have been specifically asked by the Village of Harrison Hot Springs to help celebrate Canada's 150th Birthday and we hope you can come out and join the fun. Decorate your boat in the afternoon, then join in the potluck and light parade at night! 

The HYC Light Parade has long been a feature of the Canada Day Celebrations in Harrison. It's an opportunity for our club to give something back to the community. HYC boats lit up and parading are a wonderful sight for both young and old alike.

This year, for the first time, it will be named "The HYC Bill Hopkins Memorial Light Parade" in honour of all the years the recently deceased member, Bill Hopkins, provided generators, organization and good cheer for this festivity.

LIGHTING SUGGESTIONS:

- A string of 100 LED outdoor lights uses somewhere between 5-8watts. A low cost inverter can easily handle this type of load. These inverters can be purchased from Canadian Tire for example. They don’t have to be permanently installed (hard wired in) but instead be connected to a 12-volt battery with the alligator style clips provided with the inverter. 
- Dig out the Christmas lights, more is definitely better.

We are looking for a great turnout this year, with many members' boats lit up and parading in front of what is expected to be a well-attended community event - please join us!

SCHEDULE: 

AFTERNOON: Decorate boats
6 PM: Potluck Dinner
9:30 PM: The HYC Bill Hopkins Memorial Light Parade (prior to the fireworks display by the village.

Don't forget the other activities surrounding this event:
Sleepover & Blueberry Pancake Breakfast

History of the Sail Past:

The sail past tradition began at the first Yacht Club that was formed at Cowes in England nearly 200 years ago. The membership at Cowes was primarily aristocratic and many were familiar with naval practice and tradition. Cowes Yacht Club subsequently changed its name to the Royal Yacht Squadron and certain social graces were added to the traditional naval practices.

The actual “review of the fleet” is steeped in more than 600 years of Royal Navy tradition and history and was introduced in Yacht clubs as a continuation of the naval habit of having Admirals (and/or Royalty) review the fleet on special occasions.

Protocol demanded that a flagship be anchored with the Admiral and staff on the quarterdeck to receive and return the salute. Vessels sailed past, dipping their colors in salute, and with their captain also saluting with the ship’s company standing at attention. The Vice Admiral would lead the fleet passing in review and the final vessel in the line would carry the Rear Admiral.

This has been an on going tradition of our Yacht Club since its conception, come out and enjoy this event, meet new members, and maybe see some old friends.

Green Cup Sailboat Race

The Green Cup is a coveted trophy race and all sailors should sign up! This annual event has been a club tradition for many years and usually brings out great competition!

If anyone is interested in racing for the Green Cup, please email Don Guthrie ASAP at dguthrieca@aol.com.  If you need crew, HYC has a few members interested in helping you out.

Here's a little background of the man for whom the trophy bears his name:

Mr. John Green, a past HYC member, has just recently passed away (within the last couple weeks) and this race may be somewhat symbolic and a tribute to him.

John Green claims to have built and sailed the first ever sailboat on Harrison Lake which, until very recently, was moored  at our club for years. As well as a provincial and local politician, he owned our local newspaper for decades.
