This weekend is SWIFTSURE here in Victoria, and the city is alive with sailors!

Yesterday I watched some of the sailboats arriving off Clover Point:

And this morning, the Inner Harbour looks like this...

There are usually over 200 boats entered in this race, so I'll be down at Clover Point this morning (the start line) to watch the start. It's actually four different races, and all the excitement doesn't end until tomorrow sometime, because the longest course goes out the Juan de Fuca Strait to Swiftsure Bank in the open Pacific and back. Here's a diagram of the courses, if this interests you.

Can't think of a better way to get in some quality quiet knitting time!
