The 88th Annual Boat Race Dinner @ Royal Vancouver Yacht Club | Vancouver | British Columbia | Canada

The 88th annual Boat Race Dinner will be held at the Royal Vancouver Yacht Club on Saturday, May 5th, 2018 starting at 6:30 PM. Ours is the oldest boat race dinner in North America and the cornerstone of what has kept VOCS operating through the Great Depression, World War II, and more changes in Vancouver than anyone who paid their $1.50 to be present at the first one on March 23rd, 1929 could possibly imagine. The Toast to the Universities will be given this year by Nicole Davison, the United Kingdom Consul General for British Columbia, the Yukon Territory, and the Northwest Territories. Nicole has been with the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (the “FCO”) since 1988 and has served the FCO in South Africa, Bangladesh, Ukraine, China, and Croatia as well as, when at home in the UK, serving it in the West European, Latin American and Caribbean Departments. MARK YOUR DIARIES; MORE INFO IN LATER OBs.

P.S. We are still working on a Boat Race Breakfast for the morning of March 24th, 2018 but no hard arrangements have been made. Lot of telephone tag with pubs!
