January 30th, 2023

Make it one of your New Year’s resolutions to check your BCA profile information today!  This won’t take a lot of your time, but will make the work done by the coordinators of the 2023 BCA Member Directory much, much easier.  We need all members to review and update their personal profiles, along with those of their partner/spouse and/or boat(s).

Here’s how to do that:

  • Go to the Bluewater Cruising Association website and log in
  • Click on Manage Profile (upper right rail)
  • Click on Edit Bio (found under “Information & Settings”)
  • Review / update the information and save changes (bottom of page); we will specifically be looking for your:
    • Name
    • Email
    • Partner/spouse’s name
    • Mailing address
    • Home and mobile phone number(s) and area code(s)
    • Cruising/sailing website or blog address
    • Yacht club membership
    • HAM call sign

Once that’s done, if you are the primary member (the one who pays for the membership), click on and update the Sub-accounts associated with with your membership, i.e.  your partner/spouse (the associate member) and/or your boat (also found under “Information & Settings”).  Please make sure the following are updated:

Partner/Spouse Sub-Account:

  • Partner/spouse’s name
  • Partner/spouse’s email
  • Partner/spouse’s home and mobile phone numbers
  • Partner/spouse’s HAM call sign

Boat Sub-Account Info:

  • Boat name (upper case)
  • Boat type and LOA
  • MMSI
  • SSB (VHF) call sign
  • Where Moored or Currently Cruising info

Contact Amanda, BCA’s Administrator, if you have any problems or questions such as:

  • You do not remember your username and/or password
  • Your partner/spouse and/or boat(s) are not listed as sub-accounts and you have problems creating them
  • You need to delete or detach a sub-account
  • Your sub-accounts are not linked to your account
  • You have any other questions about updating your profile
  • You want to renew your membership

Thanks for your updates and for making our work much easier!  Your new Member Directory will arrive in your mailbox later this spring.
