Make it one of your New Year’s resolutions to check your BCA profile information today! Is the information accurate and up-to-date regarding your:

  • Name
    • Is it spelled correctly and capitalized appropriately, e.g., Cathy Smith-Brown, not cathy Smith-brown
  • Mailing address
    • Please use the following street abbreviations (including the periods):
      • Ave., Blvd., Cir., Cres., Ct., Dr., Hts., Ln., Pkwy., Pl., Rd., St., Ter., Way.
      • For directions: N., S., E., W., N.W., N.E., S.W., S.E.
  • Phone number(s)
    • Be sure to check the area code(s)
  • Email address
  • Ham and/or VHF licence
  • Partner/spouse, if applicable
  • Yacht club membership

Here’s how to review the existing information and make corrections or updates:

  • 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 your information and save changes (bottom of page)

If you are the primary member (the one who pays for the membership) check to make sure:

  • Your boat’s name and type are up-to-date
  • Marina or Currently Cruising info is up-to-date
  • Your partner/spouse (the associate member) and/or boat are listed as ‘sub-accounts’:
  • Click on Sub-accounts (look for the small blue box on the left after saving your Edit Bio changes, OR click on Sub-accounts found under “Information & Settings”)
    • Is your partner/spouse linked to you?
    • Is your boat linked to you?
    • If they aren’t, follow the prompts to create a sub-account
  • If your partner/spouse does not have an email address, please update his/her profile information as well as your own

If you do not remember your username and/or password, if your sub-accounts are not linked to your account, or if you have any other questions about updating your profile, email Vimmy, BCA’s administrator, for assistance.

Thank you for your updates; you will make the directory coordinators’ job much easier!  And good luck with those other, more demanding resolutions.  Happy New Year!
