The Summer is rushing by and I am madly trying to catch up with Currents. So many things to update you on… Where to begin? First, here is the compilation of the articles published in June. It’s coming out quite late, so my apologies for that. I promise the July compilation will come out in a more timely fashion. See, the month of June saw us taking some vacation in Spain, France and Portugal (we even managed to get out sailing in Barcelona!). When we came home, a whirlwind of visitors (family and friends) was waiting for us. Between visiting and catching up on work, July flew by. Anyway, I hope you enjoy the June compilation of submissions in .pdf format. As you know, you can look at it on your own device all at once, or you can print it if you prefer to read that way.
Currents Cover Photo Contest: Results
The Currents cover photo contest results are in! We had many awesome submissions and, in spite of all being winners in our biased eyes, we had to choose 12 or 14 to be used for the cover of Currents in the next year. You can see the winners in this photo album. I would like to thank everyone who sent in a submission, as well as the selecting committee for the work they did to choose the winners. I know it wasn’t an easy task!
The August Rendezvous
Have you RSVP‘d to the August Rendezvous yet? This fun event organised by the Vancouver Chapter is taking place this coming weekend: August 1, 2 and 3. If you haven’t RSVP’d yet, make sure you do before you cast off the lines on your way to Newcastle Island. This year, BCA is providing the roast beef for dinner, and it would be really helpful to have an idea of how many people will be there. If you already RSVP’d… thank you! You are the best! I see that there are at least 20 RSVPs already!
If you would like to go to the rendezvous, but don’t have a boat, please let Denis know. He will put you in touch with people who would like to take on crew.
With this update I will sign-off with the promise that the July compilation of articles will be more timely. Please keep sending in your stories. Since Currents is now online, we need content year round. And… your stories make this publication the success that it is.
