We have some suggestions for possible presentations at the 2018 Club Nights. I am looking for more suggestions up until the end of November. I will post the suggestions as a web poll in December and then the Bridge will plan the presentations based on your votes. If you have suggestions you can post them in this forum or send them directly to the Commodore using the Red button at the top left of the page.

As someone who almost exclusively will be single-handling, I’d love a session on single-handling tips and tricks, looking at launching, docking, retrieving, anchoring, and sailing.
I think it would also be useful in the event that a crew member is ill or otherwise incapacitated.

Welcome to MYCBC
Welcome to the home of the Macgregor Yacht Club of British Columbia. We are a group of present and past Macgregor Yacht and Tattoo Yacht owners. Most of our members are in British Columbia, Canada, although we do have members from other places in Canada and the USA.
We organize on and off the water activities for owners of Macgregor and Tattoo boats; regattas, cruises, flotillas and our annual all member get together ‘MacRendezvous’. Members share tips, ideas, and hard-come-by knowledge about how to maximize the joy of owning these wonderfully affordable boats.
The basic, free sections of this website is open for all to enjoy.
You can register for free to have additional access to public forum where you can communicate with the club and can be included in emails that the club sends to members and registered users related to upcoming activities.
MYCBC membership provides you with full access to all areas of the website and the ability to participate in all activities. The modest, annual membership fee is $65 for the first year (which includes a club burgie and welcome package) and $35 per year thereafter. Membership in the club is recognized at marine stores and marinas for discounts on supplies and moorage. We also have negotiated discount insurance coverage for members. The saving you can expect will pay back your membership fee manyfold.
