The BMW Lasqueti Island Regatta is set to sail June 3-5.

This will be the 34th anniversary of the popular annual sailing race organized by the Schooner Cove Yachting Club. Every year the race normally draws more than 20 sailboats coming from a variety of Vancouver Island yacht clubs.

It will feature colourful sailboats of varying sizes jockeying for position at start and set sail to cover the 21.6 nautical miles around the small islands located between Schooner Cover and Lasqueti Island.
