February 12th, 2015

The regular Vancouver Fleet meeting for February is on the 24th and features Guy Druce.

Guy’s presentation is titled “Electronics – High Tech / Low Tech”. He will discuss his experience as navigator in last year’s Vic Maui race as navigator on a fairly high-tech boat in contrast to his circumnavigation in a low-tech one. He will discuss the electronics and how they worked (and what failed) in the context of racing and what is needed for long distance cruising.
