Wednesday night, September 25, a group of 21 sailors from 13 boats convened the first V.I. Fleet meeting of this season.
Our education coordinator, Trina Holt, made certain the gang was aware of the opportunities she and Lionel had organized for the upcoming year and she also discussed the spreadsheets she and David had developed in their process of boat shopping for the Show & Tell portion of our meeting.
Daragh Nagle and I presented this new group of offshore enthusiasts with a look at the B.C.A. website and how they might inform their quest for distant travels.
Jordan Mills, just home from his nearly 10 year circumnavigation with his wife Judy, lead the initial meeting of the weather group after our fleet discussion was complete.
Next month the group will be treated to our annual panel discussion with six experienced cruisers to prompt lots of discussion.
