Vancouver Fleet Report: September

October 13th, 2015

The first meeting of the Fleet of 2016 was held on September 22 1900h at the Scottish Cultural Centre. Members of the new Fleet introduced themselves and volunteered for the various Fleet committees. Then we had presentations from Karina of Sea Rover II on their trip to Mexico. This was followed by Cresswell Walker and Irina Chmielowicz of Conversations who has just completed a circumnavigation.

The Fleet Program Committee has arranged the program for the next meeting on October 27. It will be a presentation on Preventing Emergencies at Sea by Ken Gillstrom.

An offshore package was presented to Don Hutchinson of Nootka.

Again, we have a Fleet committee working on the offshore packages for the next year – a service to the whole of BCA.

At this time we have 21 boats registered – six of whom are leavers.
