Welcome to MYCBC

2020-03-22 MYCBC Covid 19 update

We hope all our members are well and able to be spending time on their boats while “social distancing”.  At this time we need to cancel the April 17 Club Night in accordance with Health Department recommendations. We will also be postponing indefinitely the MacSkills Confidence Cruises scheduled for April 18 & 19. We realize that this is an important club event and as such we will do all we can to reschedule it as soon as conditions permit.

At this time we are not making a decision on the May 8 Club Night or the rest of the Club Cruises in the hopes that conditions may improve and we can get back to normal. If it is necessary to cancel further events, we will inform you by email and on the MYCBC.ca website. The Bridge Executive will be meeting in mid April and will update you with plans for the May Club Night and Blaine Regatta.

We would like to encourage you to keep enjoying your MacGregor by sailing or working on any modifications you may have been putting off. If you can’t access your boat, you can spend some time exploring the MYCBC.ca website under the Resources Tab for the many useful and informative documents  or exploring the many MODS on the MacGregorsailors.com website.

From the homepage you will find Resources, Links and the Ultimate “MODS” pages where you will find hundreds of interesting MacGregor Mods. Take some time to explore and you will definitely get some great ideas.
