Fleet and Watchkeepers BBQ

Cameron and Marianne McLean, Vancouver Fleet Coordinators

Seabird 37
June 13th, 2017

All members of the Fleets of 2017 – whether from the Vancouver area, Vancouver Island, Calgary or Washington and all members of the Watches (Vancouver, Vancouver Island, Calgary) including partners and spouses are invited to the BCA June Fleet potluck supper on Tuesday, June 27, at 1800h at Spruce Harbour Marina, in False Creek, Vancouver. It would be good to see some members of the Calgary and Vancouver Island Watchkeekpers if they happen to be in town.

There will be a presentation of offshore packages to some of this years’ leavers.


Please bring a main course for yourself: something to barbecue, something to warm up (there is a microwave, a convection oven and warming plates) or something cold, plus either an appetizer, a salad or a dessert, as follows:

  • If your last name begins with A – I bring an appetizer
  • If your last name begins with J – Q bring a salad
  • If your last name begins with R – Z bring a dessert

Use the name of the person first listed in the Fleet names list or in the Directory for the Watch. If you are in the A – I category and won’t be there on time, arrange to swap with someone else.


Please bring what you want to drink, and wear your name tags. It is a lot easier to talk to people when you know who they are. The clubhouse has plates large and small, cups, wine, beer and tall glasses, and cutlery. There are two fridges and a freezer as well. We will be looking for volunteers to help with the washing and cleaning up.

How to Get There

Turn north off 6th avenue onto Alder Crossing, then right on Lamey’s Mill Road. If you want to drop off your supplies before parking, turn left into Sitka Square, head through it ignoring the authorized vehicles only signs, turn right into Scantling road (driving over the bump) and bear left toward the water. At the seawall there is a 20 minute loading zone. The entrance to the marina is about a tenth of a cable west along the walkway (Caesar’s Bridge). Hit button 72 at the gate and someone will let you in.


There are a few parking spots in Sitka Square itself. There is parking on Lamey’s Mill Road to the west and there are a few parking lots along there as well. The largest parking lot is a pay lot at the east end of Lamey’s Mill Road just past the three-way stop sign.

Please RSVP  as soon as possible. Let us know whether you are coming or not.
