Vancouver Island Fleet Report: March 2018

Provisioning was the main topic presented to the 18 members from 11 boats at the March 7 fleet meeting (including 1 on Zoom and 2 new members).  Barbara Erickson and Jordan and Judy Mills combined to cover the topic very well with several helpful ideas and engaging stories to keep every one attentive.

After the break Jacqueline Randen offered a very interesting presentation regarding commercial shipping and how we as recreational users of the waterways may expect to interact with the personnel on the bridge of these large vessels.

The plan for the meeting on April 4 is Safety & Comfort at sea with David Robb followed by the remainder of our Sail Trim presentation and a wind up discussion.

Planning is also under way for a fleet rendezvous / boat tours in April.
