The third meeting of the Fleet of 2016 was held on November 24 at 1900h at the Scottish Cultural Centre. We heard from Jeff Cote of Pacific Yacht Systems on power generation and power storage.
I have been asking for a volunteer to coordinate VICE 2016. Since VICE is a program for all of BCA it doesn’t have to be sponsored by someone from our Fleet. It could be picked up by someone from the other Fleets or by any member of BCA. Don Hutchison, who did it last year has volunteered to advise anyone who takes it on for this year. There is a detailed set of instructions for setting up the program plus all the forms one would need on the website. I have asked for volunteers at a regular club meeting and asked the other chapters including the Nanaimo group.
The next Fleet meeting will be the traditional Christmas potluck supper at our house on December 15. All Fleet members are invited. Details will be sent out to the Fleet.
At this time we have 27 boats registered – eight of whom are leavers.
