Each year, we raffle off one of the acorn dinghies built in our lapstrake course. This fundraiser raises a significant amount of money each year.

Tickets (only 3500 printed) are available at reception at a cost of $5 for one or $20 for five.

The draw will take place on September 27th, 2018 at the Cowichan Bay Maritime Centre.


  • First prize is the boat pictured above. It is a 10' Lapstrake Acorn Dinghy (value of $6000).
  • Second prize is a framed print of "Cowichan Bay" by Michael Dean (value of $500).
  • Third prize is a whale watching excursion for two provided by Ocean Ecoventures (value of $275).
