The Roedde House Museum presents a new special exhibition: "A Sailor's Life for Me - Bill Roedde and the Story of Carita".

By Roedde House Museum: 
Featuring original racing trophies, hand-drawn architectural plans of the Roedde Class sloops, and one-of-a-kind photos of Bill Roedde and of his beloved Carita, this intimate portrait of a sailor and Vancouverite is not to be missed.
Bill Roedde belonged to one of Vancouver’s earliest pioneer families who settled in the city in 1887. Taking up his father’s love of sailing, Bill joined the Royal Vancouver Yacht Club as a Junior member in 1905, and came to be “probably the best known and respected yachtsman on the Pacific Coast”. Honorary Life Member of the RVYC and champion racer, Bill is fondly remembered by all who met him. His legacy lives on thanks to the class of sloops that bears his name, and sails to this day. 
As we remember him with a twinkle in his eye and characteristic big smile, "Old Bill" would be glad to see us embrace his passion as much as he did.
The exhibition will run at the museum from August 20 to October 20.
**This exhibition was made possible by the support of the Vancouver Maritime Museum and by the invaluable help and advice from Ted Davis, Larry Griffin and David Williams (RVYC)**.
