Burrard Yacht Club Classic Boat and Car Show

Jun 15, 2008

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.


The sun was shining in more ways than one on Father's Day Sunday, especially for car enthusiasts. Porsches lined Marine Drive in West Vancouver's Dundarave for the annual Show and Ride while in North Vancouver's Waterfront Park, the Ferraris, Lambos and Maseratis got in line for the Italian Car Show. But for a double dose of fun, families headed down to the Burrard Yacht Club for the Classic Boat and Car Show. So no matter where you went, it all added up to some freewheeling fun guaranteed to make dad's day.

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.
