The Vancouver Fleet of 2021 held its second meeting of the year via Zoom on February 26.
The usual Show and Tell session featured a Kong Tango carabiner which can safely be managed with one hand, a Jordan series drogue, and a small and efficient fuel transfer pump.
The topic of insurance was covered by three presenters. First, James MacDonald from NAVIS Insurance updated the group on the recent changes in the industry.
Next, long-time BCA member Jean Baillargeon from Shamata joined the group all the way from New Zealand and shared his experience with insuring his boat over the years. This was followed by Dale Gebbard, another long-time BCA member sailing Adios, who has always successfully self insured during his many years of cruising. No shortage of options for the group to consider!
