Ladner Yacht Club members will be taking a group from Big Brothers on a special outing this Saturday.

The club plans to take out about 20 people from Big Brothers of Greater Vancouver on a cruise to Steveston and back.

"Getting a view from the water is very different than from land and a ride past the floating homes is always neat," says the Ladner Yacht Club's Richard Laurendeau.

He notes the club will tie up at the new community docks in Steveston.

There'll be a little barbecue before heading out to Steveston.

Big Brothers of Greater Vancouver offers friendship-based mentoring programs for boys and girls and provides volunteer opportunities for men and women.
