This week the 2020 edition of the Bluewater Cruising Association (BCA) Member Directory has been arriving in the mailboxes of members in good standing from Vancouver Island to Calgary to Ontario and beyond – have you received yours? If not, please email BCA’s Administrator, Vimmy Dhillon, to ensure your membership is up-to-date.
The Directory is a great way to learn more about BCA and its programs, meet the 2020 Watchkeepers and Board of Directors, and, most importantly, to connect with other BCA members. You may choose to keep your copy on your boat so that when you drop the hook and see another vessel proudly flying the BCA burgee, you can look them up in your Member Directory and connect with new friends. Or you may want to keep your copy close at hand at home.
Once you receive your copy, please check your own listing and the additional details published in the “sorts” (boat name, boat type, where moored, yacht club affiliation, etc) found in the latter half of the Directory; while every effort is made to include accurate, up-to-date info, we know that BCA members are active and move, change contact info, boats, moorages, etc throughout the year. If your information or that of your boat is out-of-date or incomplete, please update your profile and your boat’s profile on the BCA website: log-in, click on My Profile and Manage Profile; or email your changes to Vimmy Dhillon.
The Member Directory is published thanks to the volunteer efforts of many, including Directory Coordinators, Donna Sassaman, Rhonda Schuller and Jennifer Handley, and a fabulous support team consisting of Guylain Roy-Machabée, Vimmy Dhillon and Linda Mitsui, our publisher. If you are interested in volunteering with a passionate group of talented individuals on next year’s directory, please contact Donna Sassaman.
Last of all, BCA is very appreciative of the marine industry businesses who purchased advertising in this year’s Directory. Thanks to:
