Vancouver Island Fleet Report: March 2020

Al Kitchen - VI Fleet Coordinator

Huntingford 53 Ketch
April 14th, 2020

Due to concerns regarding imminent surgery scheduling, we arranged for Al to lead discussions from March 4-15 with V.I. Fleet members on the topics of Weather Routing and the Paperwork of Clearing In & Out of Foreign Lands. The audience included 3 of the 6 new members who have joined V.I. Fleet recently and we look forward to their participation in the learning experiences.

Daragh showed us his on-board sail repair kit and his Mexican style hand line fishing gear for offshore with a description of how he handles it and the delicious catches he hauls in.

Unfortunately, due to the unprecedented COVID-19 situation all over the World, Daragh didn’t lead the Fleet night discussions on April 1.

V.I. Fleet Rendezvous planned for the weekend of April 17-19 at Port Browning on Pender Island has been cancelled.
