In Victoria we were moored on the Causeway Floats and they were full of boats preparing for the Vic-Maui race. I didn't know there WAS a Vic-Maui race but here is the link.
Chris took it all in stride and we enjoyed the view of people climbing masts and divers cleaning the bottoms of the boats. "Kinetic" pictured above is one of the current leaders.
