Vancouver Island Fleet Report: April 2021

Al Kitchen - VI Fleet Coordinator

The final BCA V.I. Fleet meeting of the 2020/21 season was held virtually on April 14. After announcing the cancellations of various BCA events due to the current pandemic conditions, Brent Alley opened a discussion evaluating Mobile Hot Spots. He discussed their purposes, options and the advantages of several of the devices available.

We then had the opportunity to learn about some of the applications of Predict Wind from Max Shaw, our V.I. Weather coordinator.

Max had helpful suggestions and answers for questions directed his way, always with an eye to a fuller appreciation the kind of diligence required to be a truly competent offshore sailor.

To close out the year we conducted a survey, including the weather group, to get feedback on what worked this year and how we can improve the V.I. Fleet and Weather offerings for next year.

Daragh and I would like to thank all those who have helped make this another successful year for the V.I. Fleet. We’d like to make special mention of the Vancouver Fleet group for their cooperation as we expanded our reach to the benefit of the Fleet across the Association.
