It is a public information day with free boat rides for the public (courtesy of the Boat Warehouse, CORK, and Wards Marine), displays by Coast Guard, HMCS Cataraqui, the local fire department, public health(sun safety and mocktails), the local windsurfing school, and of course the Collins Bay Yacht Club sailing school.
