Fleet is an education focus group for those planning to head offshore in the next year or two. The Fleet group meets regularly and offers additional training in the form of meetings, workshops, vendors’ visits and boat visits. Fleet is also excellent for Doners, who are preparing for another voyage, get primed, updated and meet the people you will be voyaging with. To join Fleet you must be a BCA member.
If you are planning to sail offshore in the next year or two, either on your own boat or someone else’s, consider joining the VI Fleet of 2015/16, which will have its first meeting at 6:30 pm on Wednesday, September 30th at Royal Victoria Yacht Club. The Fleet meets every two weeks and has presentations or group discussions on a variety of topics of interest to Fleet members. The cost is $60 per boat for the year.
Many Fleet members also join the Weather Group, which meets on the same nights immediately after Fleet. The Weather Group is designed to help participants increase their understanding of global weather and to develop skills in analyzing and applying weather information available at sea.
How to Join
If you are interested in joining the 2015/16 Fleet or Weather Group, contact us for more information. It may take us a while to reply, as we’ll be cruising to Alaska this summer and will only occasionally have internet access.
