Vic-Maui Alumni Reunion 1965-2014

Great fun was had by all on April 10th at the first Vic-Maui Alumni Reunion, held at the Royal Vancouver Yacht Club's main clubhouse.  One hundred and forty-nine boisterous sailors attended, representing boats from the earliest races in 1965 and 1968 all the way through the years to the upcoming 2014 race.  Like fine wine, we and our stories are all getting better with age ...  The winds were stronger, the seas higher, the speeds faster; ah, those were the days, my friend. The Tiki Bar and Mai Tai's were features not to be missed.  Several of the Emilies were there, representing the first all-female team.  RVYC's very own Vic-Maui veteran Eric Holden sent a congratulatory message from the mid-Pacific, where he was skippering Clipper Challenge entrant Henri Lloyd to another podium finish.  Multi-race veterans Dan Sinclair and Vern Burkhardt mingled with fresh 2014 recruits. 

Prizes were awarded for Best Photo (Jan Emerton), Best War Story (Bill Cote), Most Races (Dan O’Brien), Youngest Sailor (Bill Cote), Best Outfit (Doris Pacey), and the grand prize of the evening -- a five night stay in a condo at the Outrigger Napili Shores on Maui -- was won by Dwight Jefferson.  You had to be there to win!  Many thanks to Kimberly Ballantyne and her fantastic committee of Kate Ballantyne, Val Johnson, Barbara Picton and Guy Walters, for entertaining us with hula dancers, great food and drink, and a fabulous collection of slide shows, photo albums, videos and souvenirs from past races. 

We look forward to seeing everyone at the next Vic-Maui Alumni Reunion, when we will also be celebrating the 50th anniversary of the race.
