Join the VI Mid-Island Group and some Nanaimo Yacht Club friends for an unstructured get-together on Newcastle Island. Catch up and socialize with fellow sailors. Newcomers and all boaters are welcome to join us for the day.

A mid-day BBQ will start around noon. But come early and stay late! Bring something to BBQ, your own beverages, and a side-dish to share. We’ll provide disposable dishes, cutlery, napkins, paper towels and dessert! We will also have BBQ tools and spray. We have the space for the whole day, but you could extend the BURP for as long as choose, on your own.

  • Arrive by boat, dinghy, ferry (runs from 9:00 am to 4:45 pm). Come for the day or the weekend. If some of your crew are interested in camping, contact Margaret.
  • Mooring balls may be available for a fee.  Anchoring is permitted.  There may be space at the dock (on a first come basis).
  • Bring something to BBQ for yourself and a side-dish for 6 to share (this is based on a couple…a little extra if you are a larger group).
  • Bring your own beverages.
  • Alcohol may be consumed in the BBQ area or in your campsite or on your boat, but not elsewhere in the park.
  • VI Mid-Island group will provide disposable plates and cutlery and dessert!

NOTE: Bikes are permitted in the park but NOT electric bikes.

Registration: While there is no charge for this event it would be appreciated if you would let us know your intentions so we can plan for the numbers we expect to attend (i.e. some extra chairs might be needed!).

You can register via the website to express your interest! We look forward to seeing you!
