Kelowna Yacht Club boat show

The largest open-air boat and leisure show between Vancouver and Calgary will bring watersport lovers to the shores of Okanagan Lake all weekend long.

Kelowna’s annual Yacht Club Boat and Leisure show will take place Saturday and Sunday at the Kelowna Yacht Club’s docks, where visitors will get an eyeful of the best boating has to offer.

When the boat show started in 1995, it featured only new boats, but it was expanded to include a variety of leisure products. The expansion helped increase both the number of exhibitors and attendance. Last year, nearly 15,000 visitors viewed the boats.

The yacht club, a not for profit society, tries to keep costs to a minimum and uses net proceeds from exhibitor fees to fund the maintenance and expansion of a system of public mooring buoys anchored strategically on Okanagan Lake.

The buoys are freely available for the general public, including tourists who are often not aware of other safe anchorages.
