Not only are members of the Vancouver Fleet busy preparing themselves and their boats for offshore, but a small committee within that group is researching, sourcing and assembling “leaver” packages for BCA members who plan to cast off their lines in 2022. This package is a farewell presentation from BCA given to all members in good standing who are leaving for offshore whether or not they are a member of the Calgary, Vancouver or Vancouver Island Fleet.
If you are heading south or departing for offshore from a foreign port this year and have not yet “applied” for your package, please email Vancouver Fleet Coordinator Cameron McLean and provide him with the following details about your plans:
- Boat name
- Skipper and crew names
- Call signs
- Leaving date
- Date/location for presentation, ie May Rendezvous, August Rendezvous, June BBQ, Club Night
- Offshore email address (not Winlink or SailMail)
Deadline for the offshore package application is April 30, 2022, but the committee would prefer to receive your application sooner rather than later. Requests received after April 30 are not guaranteed a package.
Congratulations to all BCA members who are counting down the days to their departure! May fair winds and following seas be yours; and please stay in touch with your BCA friends.
