Easter Seals Regatta

Aug 25, 2007

By Catherine "Cat" Barr

The North Shore Outlook is delivered to over 60,000 homes in Canada's wealthiest communities, North Vancouver and West Vancouver, every Thursday - over 60,000 issues in print.


Johnny Depp may get credit for starting the pirate craze worldwide, but on this side of the border, someone else gets my vote. The 17th Annual National Bank Financial Easter Seals Regatta & Festival consists of several fun events that even land lubbers can enjoy. North Shore skippers usually dominate in the race and prize department, but in the end, all that matters is the smiles on the faces of the kids. Over $236,000 dollars was raised this year in support of Easter Seals. Big thanks to PR gal Lea Carpenter for help with the fabulous pics.

Catherine Barr, Vancouver's celebrity events reporter and photographer, is supported online by CLR Communications Ltd, , and

Vancouver's best events and celebrity functions are all archived here. Vancouver pubs, clubs, nightclubs, gala events and fundraisers are included. Thanks for viewing.

Due to server capacity, you will not be able to access or click through to the larger photographs. With over 250,000 unique visits each month, our site would quickly exceed the amount of memory needed.

If you would like to receive a copy of a photograph, then please send an email and enclose the details of the event, the date, the name, the photo number and the names of the people in the photograph. Also, for security reasons, I prefer not to email copies of pictures to anyone other than the people who are actually in the photo. Thanks.

A pretty pink pirate indeed. North Van's Sophia Turner can swashbuckle with the best of them.
