“Rise up by lifting others” Wind-water sports launch dock to officially open

PORT ALBERNI – The Port Alberni Port Authority (PAPA), City of Port Alberni and South Port Kitesurfers are pleased to invite media and the public to the official “Grand Opening” of the new wind-water sports dock located on the waterfront at Harbour Quay Marina below the Lighthouse Maritime Gallery on Wednesday, June 17th at 3:30 pm.

The event will include comments from Port Alberni Mayor Mike Ruttan; Chair of the Board of Directors for the Port Alberni Port Authority, Ron Crema; and the spokesperson for the South Port Kite Surfers, Dale Moffatt.
There will also be a display of kite surfing in the harbour, weather permitting.
