The May meeting of the Vancouver Fleet took place on May 30. Zoom opened early at 1900h to provide an opportunity for informal chat among members. This was an occasion for Fleet members to catch up on how others were dealing with the last minute stages of getting boats ready for offshore and exchanging news of Fleet members of former years.

The main topic of the meeting was Boat Insurance with Sean Thompson of Dolphin Insurance. Sean dealt with a number or questions re insurance costs in various cruising areas. He emphasized the importance of making claims before starting repairs or recovery.

The next meeting will be the Watchkeepers’ Farewell to the Fleet Barbecue at 1800h on June 27 at Spruce Harbour Marina. As well as those from the Vancouver Chapter, this traditional barbecue welcomes Leavers, Fleet members, Watch members and doners from all BCA chapters if they happen to be in town. Even though some of the leavers may already have received their offshore packages it will be a second opportunity for us to wish them well.  Details will be sent out closer to the date.
