The Bob Ross

The Bob Ross is the "committee boat" at Britannia Yacht Club.  This means that it anchors across from race buoy at both the start and finish lines of a race so that the race officials can see along the line for false starts or to time the various classes as they finish.

She, or is it he?, is moored in a quiet corner of the harbour waiting for the first race of the year.

  1. The Bob Ross honours a venerable member who volunteered as caretaker/guard at BYC, post retirement as a CN Porter. He lived in a wooden cottage beside the Lac Deschenes Rapids, now converted to part of the BYC Junior Club.
