Vancouver Fleet Report - April 2021

The Vancouver Fleet of 2021 held the fourth meeting of the year via Zoom on April 27. At this stage, it appears that three boats are planning a VICE session for this year.

Because of last minute presenter cancellations the program was changed to an enhanced Show and Tell where all Fleet members were invited to share insights about projects that they are working on right now. In addition, Fleet members were also invited to discuss their plans for future projects as a way to bounce ideas off of each other.

Some of the insights that were shared referred to items like ground tackle options, such as chain, shackles, snubbers and anchor gear. Furthermore, the group discussed  rope and chafing, recent refits, electric dingy motors, medication and vaccination, fire fighting, and more.

The next regular Fleet meeting will be on May 25, 2021 starting at 1900 hours. The topic for the evening will be Storm Tactics, presented by Tony Gooch.
