The Fleet of 2021 held its fourth meeting via Zoom on December 22. In this virtual potluck meeting members showed off a favourite meal while describing some of their sailing and cruising adventures.

On November 24, members of the Vancouver Island Fleet joined us for a presentation by Rob Murray from Avant on importing Satellite Charts into OpenCPN. Rob covered topics such as using SASPlanet to download satellite images and exporting them into Mbtile charts which can then be imported into OpenCPN.

There was a second shared meeting with the other Fleets with a presentation on OpenCPN on January 14.

Vancouver Fleet Weather Group

The Fleet’s weather program continued on December 15 and again on January 12 with presentations each time from two of the members. Participants will be using real time weather information to plan a virtual voyage.

Vancouver Fleet’s weather group will meet again on February 9.

The next regular Fleet meeting will be January 26 starting at 1900 hours. The meeting topic will be Navigating Coral Reefs presented by BCA member Jean Baillargeon.
