NANAIMO, BRITISH COLUMBIA, JULY 19, 2022 – SEAMOR Marine – or should we say “Team SillyMor” – came together on Sunday, July 17th for the 36th Annual Silly Boat Races at Maffeo Sutton Park in Nanaimo, BC. What started off as a cold a dreary day, turned into a nice afternoon for some silliness. It rained all morning, but about an hour before the races started, the sun broke through the clouds.
This was SEAMOR’s second time racing, and fourth year of sponsorship support for the Nanaimo Child Development Centre, a not-for-profit organization that’s been an integral part of Nanaimo family services since 1967.
All boats are put together onsite using recycled materials. Our team was scheduled in the 4th Heat finishing a very respectful 2nd place after the Superette Super Sailors. Team Captain, Tracy Berg, was enthusiastic: “It was great to be at a community event, seeing the kids laughing and enjoying themselves. SEAMOR is a proud sponsor, and will continue to support this great local charity, and its amazing work with Nanaimo’s children and families. Sunday’s event raised over $61,000 and counting!”
SEAMOR is super proud of our boat builders and crew. It is all for the kids! Join us next year!
