Public Transit – Bus stops are located at 4th and Marine followed by a 10-15 minute walk on a side walk to the Jericho Sailing Centre.













Tides will be low during the festival, which means there is a higher chance of exposure to sharp rocks and barnacles. We recommend wearing good water shoes or neoprene booties.
