The December meeting of the Vancouver Fleet, attended by ten people, was held over dinner at a restaurant in Stamps Landing . It was in the spirit of the Christmas Potluck suppers we used to have at the McLeans’ house.  New members Mary and Dave Kruger, Synchronicity, were welcomed to the Fleet.

The January meeting featured Ken Gillstrom presenting Heavy Weather Tactics.  Show and Tell covered nylon hydraulic hose webbing for anti-chafe from Princess Auto. It allows water to go through it which prevents overheating of the line.  Also described were heavy duty 5-6mm zip lock bags, in a variety of sizes for storing items on board.  The Fleet also was given a recommendation for the movie ‘In the Heart of the Sea.’

We have a volunteer to start the process for VICE 2022 and information will be sent out soon. We also have volunteers for Offshore Leaver Packages.  A request for information from this year’s leavers will also be sent out soon.

Plans for the February 22nd meeting are in flux pending arrangements for availability for Zoom meetings.
