On Sunday, October 5th at the Royal Victoria Yacht Club, Thermopylae Regatta signaled the end of the 2014 Vancouver Island Racing Series of 12 races held throughout the year.
Vern Burkhardt, Chair of Swiftsure, provided a gift certificate for a free entry to Swiftsure 2015. At this event, Liane Kern and Alex Fox of Trotac Marine, V.I.R.S. presenting sponsor (also a Swiftsure sponsor!), randomly drew from among the names of yachts present at the regatta for one lucky boat.
White Noise, a Martin 242 owned by Kirk Westergaard, was drawn. His crew were on hand to receive the gift certificate, pictured here. Congratulations to Kirk and his crew.
