Round the Isles Opener – Salt Spring Island
The Round the Isles is the early season (June is early for the Old Guys) Opener race that explores the islands, rocks and waters of Long Harbour. It is not unusual to have to portage over some of the drier bits and maybe even do some crabbing along the way. The winner claims the Ballantyne on the Rocks Perpetual Trophy. You need to hear the story about Jim Ballantyne’s unfortunate navigation error at Dodds Narrows. Jim Ballantyne (1929-2014) was the Commodore’s father, a legend of Scott Point, and the inspiration behind this make-shift club.
