Highlights of the March Club Night

Thirteen member boats were represented at the meeting.  The minutes of the meeting are posted in Resources. It looks like our membership is increasing but we still have 20 members who need to renew by the end of the month. We have room for 1 more participant in the Open Water MacFoulie in English Bay March 18. If you are interested send an email to Vice Commodore Darry using the contact us form under the About Us tab on the website. The April 1 Spring Near Shore MacFoulie is full.

Plans are coming together for the Blaine Regatta May 19-22. Safety Sail featuring practice in emergency anchoring, reefing and crew overboard drills will happen Saturday. If you haven’t practiced these before, come on down and crew on one of the member boats to learn how it is done. A special treat Saturday will be the Practice Docking for Women by Women lead by Cheryl of Blue Water Yachts. No men allowed! Paul will be presenting a slide show and talk on his experience on the Vic-Maui Race last year after the Saturday Potluck. Sunday will be the Regatta Performance Sail. Come out and measure your skills navigating the the markers in Semiahmoo Bay.

Gail and Elizabeth will be investigating a more “Nautical” location for our Year End Dinner and Awards night. They will have the details for the April Club Night. Remember the Club Night date has changed to Friday April 7.

The Club voted to end our support for the Georgia Straight Alliance. Although our individual members are encouraged to support GSA or other groups and the good things they represent, it was felt the club should not be endorsing any groups involved in political issues.

The Apps, Programs and websites for MacSailors is now posted in the Club Night Presentations Folder. Thanks to all who contributed their favourites. It was suggested we start a forum post to get even more input.


2017-02-11

Our 25th Season has officially begun. The minutes of the February Club Night can be found under the Resource/Downloads tab. Everyone should note the one big change. April Club Night has been moved to April 7 to avoid Good Friday. Please make the change on your calendar.

Thanks Andy for the great presentation on MacGregor Sailing Provisioning. It has been posted Under the Resources/Downloads/Club Night Presentation tab. If you missed it…. check it out. Lots of great information.
