Vancouver Fleet Report – May 2021

The last meeting of the Vancouver Fleet of 2021 was held via Zoom on May 25.

At this stage there appear to be three or four boats thinking about a VICE session for this year. Their plans are to meet in Ucluelet on August 11. Further information and a chance to join them should be available soon  on the BCA website. You could also contact Ken Buckley at buckleyker@shaw.ca [1]

The offshore packages committee is assembling leavers’ packages for 2021. If you are planning on leaving this year and haven’t registered for packages already contact Cameron at vanfleet@bluewatercruising.org [2].

Show and Tell included an airtight caulking tube and a dummy load for testing a SSB radio.

The fleet program for the evening was a presentation on Preparing for Heavy Weather by Tony Gooch.

Plans have been made for a Fleet 2022 weather group. The first meeting of the Vancouver Fleet of 2022 will be on September 28, 2021, starting at 1900h. Mark your calendars and enjoy the summer!
