The first meeting of the Vancouver Fleet of 2017 was held on September 27 at the Scottish Cultural Centre. Members of the new Fleet introduced themselves and volunteered for the various Fleet committees.
The introductions were followed by presentations from Jim Matusiak of Solar Flare and Rob Murray of Avant about their trips and stays in Mexico.
Both Jim and Rob have been in Mexico for a few seasons and spoke about their experiences. They shared their opinions on a number of issues, including preparations to leave, boat maintenance, weather sources and communications while in Mexico. They also shared great resources as well their “must have” lists. You can see their presentation slides from the links below:
An offshore package was presented to Bill Bourlet of Music who has now left for Mexico as well.
The Fleet Committee
Like in previous years, we have a Fleet committee working on the offshore packages for the next year – a service to all members of BCA.
There were more than 35 people at the meeting representing twenty boats of which seven were leavers.
