Welcome, Cathy Fritter - A New Member on BCA's Board of Directors

Please join me in welcoming Vancouver Chapter member, Cathy Fritter, to the BCA Board of Directors.

Cathy and her husband Rob, are new to BCA, having just joined in January 2016 as Dreamers. They have been cruising for 14 summer seasons, visiting many points between Seattle and Desolation Sound on L’Orien, their Mason 43 cutter. Cathy fell in love with the sea as a kid, works in a marine related business, and taught and participated in dinghy sailing as a teen. She and Rob thought BCA sounded like a great organization for them to take their sailing further – literally! Bringing experience in various positions in other organizations, Cathy decided to volunteer as Board Secretary after singing sea shanties at the Poet’s Cove Rendezvous (listen for the advert at approx 1:30), and looks forward to getting to know other members…


Thanks, Cathy, for volunteering to serve on the Board. As the person who is responsible for keeping records of BCA decisions, (primarily by taking and distributing the Minutes of BOD meetings and the AGM), you help us fulfill our fiduciary responsibilities.  For that, we are very grateful!
