Visitor Guide

The Ford World Men’s Curling Championship sets sail for Victoria in 2013 – the scene of one of the most dramatic showdowns in world curling history when Team Canada led by Randy Ferbey reeled off eight consecutive wins to claim the title in 2005.

The excitement swelled throughout the week as crowds in the Save-On-Foods Memorial Centre grew day by day to witness the Canadian team’s inspiring charge to the championship.

The spirit returns to the “City of Gardens” in April 2013 when the best teams in men’s curling meet in one of the most breathtaking settings in the world – rich in arts, culture, history and natural beauty.  And, don’t forget your clubs… because golf season will be in full swing on Vancouver Island’s world-class courses!
