Sailing action on Okanagan Lake this weekend as Vernon Regatta returns

Vernon Regatta returns

After a three-year absence, the Vernon Yacht Club regatta returns this weekend.

"We haven't had a regatta in three years, and we're back in style!" says spokesperson Sarah Kennedy.

The club has a record 25 boats enrolled so far, "so it's going to be a great event," says Kennedy.

Racing action starts on Friday with a race to the yacht club from Whiskey Island, followed by a barbecue at the club.

On Saturday, races will be held in the waters in front of the yacht club, making for some spectacular public viewing. That evening, there will be a dinner and dance.

Racing continues Sunday, and the day wraps up with awards.
