The Fleet meeting on February 8 was cancelled because of snow and has been rescheduled for late March.
At our meeting on February 22, Glen Wilson brought his Jordan Series Drogue for “show & tell” to demonstrate the usefulness of this item for heavy weather sailing. Campbell Thomson then gave a talk to over 30 Fleet members about “Watermakers and Alternate Energy Sources” and showed examples of related equipment from his business Trotac Marine. This was followed by the Weather Group debriefing their virtual passage from Hawaii to San Diego.
