As the wind picked up along the coastline of the Saanich Peninsula this week, thee were some predictable results.
As pair of boats — one a small dingy and the other a sailboat — washed ashore at North Saanich’s Nymph Point Park between Monday and Tuesday. The sailboat, according to a marina worker at the scene Tuesday, said it’s owned by someone and will be rescued and put back in place.
The dingy appears older and may have been around a bit longer.
During times of high winds around the Saanich Peninsula, there is a good chance boats can be torn from their moorings and end up on the rocks or gravelly beaches in the area.
