The 2016 Skiffie Worlds Championships got off to a great start with a spectacular Sunday afternoon flotilla. The colourful skiffs rode the strong tide through the Narrows accompanied by two tall ships, a salute of cannon fire and loud cheers. The Canadian team has been interviewed on radio and television, photographed and warmly welcomed. Races start in earnest tomorrow with the women leading the Canadian team. Stay tuned!
