The 8th West Coast Fleming Fling took place at Port Sidney Marina, May 13th-15th in Sidney BC. This event was hosted by Chuck Hovey Yachts, Grand Yachts and Delta Marine. It was a wonderfully relaxed event with dinners and events that included Butchart Gardens and golf on James’ Island. Hull 50-001, “Sea Trial”, now owned by Monte and Teddi Hester of Gig Harbor Washington joined Tony Fleming on Venture to lead the fleet in a “V” formation for the final event.
