Vancouver Island Real Estate Board staffer Joanne Russell, an MLS customer service rep, along with local long-term community supporter The Buccaneer Inn were the winners in the Grand Challenge Heat during the Annual Silly Boat Regatta in Nanaimo. The winning crew of Swashbucklers was one of 42 nautical teams to participate, with nearly $100,000 raised for the Nanaimo Child Development Centre. The shoreline was crowded with an estimated 10,000 vocal supporters as the Buccaneer gang assembled and successfully raced their ingenious craft. The rules for the event state your vessel has to be assembled on site just prior to the race, so the winners proved to be both sound shipwrights as well as fierce competitors.
