The Vancouver Island Chapter needs a dynamic, collaborative, and educationally-minded member to coordinate educational offerings for the Greater Victoria area.

Do you want to contribute the Chapter’s operations? Are you ready to join a great team: the VI Watch? Do you want to attend club nights for free?!?

Other benefits include:

  • Meeting more BCA members;
  • Meeting great instructors;
  • Getting to know the course materials; and
  • Coordinating with the VI Fleet and other chapter Education Watchkeepers to cover the educational needs of all members.

Please contact Donna Sassaman, BCA’s Volunteer Coordinator, at for more information or to put your name forward. Mentoring will be available.

Note: If desired, this position can be shared by two individuals, one focussing on ‘educational programming’ and the other on ‘website administration’.

    Because I live in Portland I can’t be your volunteer coordinator, but I can offer to make a presentation (or two) to your group. I am planning an Inside Passage trip this year on my boat and will be spending a fair bit of time in your area. I have three or four presentations ready in my laptop now (leftovers from Seattle Boat Show gigs that I no longer give) so if you need a speaker (at no charge for short 45 minutes to 90 minutes) give me a call. I also have longer *courses* I can give (4 hours) that I charge $ for. My phone is 503.358.5102. Coincidence: I will arrive Victoria tomorrow (Monday) on the Coho for one night, then to Tofino for two nights, then one night in Nanaimo, back to US on the Coho on Friday afternoon in case you want to follow up. Don’t hesitate to call. I am often away from my email gor long periods, but I am rarely away from text or phone on the number above. Thanks.
