Not only is Sailpast a Kelowna Yacht Club tradition, it is a ceremony that dates back to the earliest beginnings of naval tradition as well.
Sailpast is a ceremony of inspecting a fleet of ships, and showing respect to the Commander-in-Charge. Throughout history this ceremony has included royalty, heads of state and admirals, all inspecting fleets or entire navies. Every year, the practice of Sail Past is performed by thousands of yacht clubs around the world and signifies the official start of the boating season.
