News & EventsMay 8, 2017

January 17, 2017 saw Free Spirit slide into her slip on Granville Island and begin her week of "showing off" her stuff to the many visitors walking the docks during the Vancouver Boat Show from January 18 to 22.    Tuesday before the opening day of the show, she was swept, washed, polished and made ready for the show!!  Free Spirit was ready to welcome the numerous visitors and also at the ready were the many BCA volunteers who greeted, answered questions and chatted with everyone who stepped on board.  Approximately 150 people admired Free Spirit's lines, her wood interior, the offshore equipment as well as the "walk in" engine room!!!

A little about Free Spirit:  She was built in 1973 by Spencer Boats Ltd., in Richmond.  Free Spirit is a 44' Spencer center cockpit with full cutaway forefoot keel and keel hung rudder. She sports her original Isuzu 55 HP engine.  Very well equipped as an offshore boat!!  Free Spirit has sailed to many parts of the world, competed in the 1995 Darwin to Ambon race and winning her division.  Agathe & Georgette are preparing her for her next offshore adventure.
