We Need You!
Our Annual General Meeting is coming up at Pebbles Restaurant, Sechelt on 20 April. As we head into the new season, we’re looking for members to step up to fill vacancies on the Executive Committee, to help direct the activities of the Squadron. For two years running, we have won the District award for the greatest percentage membership increase year over year. We want to remain relevant to you, and to do so we need willing volunteers to help. Specific openings include, Secretary, Public Relations, Socials, and Membership. Strong support will be available from existing Executive Officers. If you think you might be interested in these, or in unassigned positions in order to learn how the Squadron works, please contact Rod Moorcroft, Secretary at email@example.com Jack Adams, Squadron Commander at firstname.lastname@example.org. We’ll look forward to hearing from you!
Learn new manouvers with the Boating Skills Virtual Trainer. Risk free, hands on experience.
The Squadron will have the loan of the Pacific Mainland District’s Boating Skills Virtual Trainer, a hands-on computerised learning console which includes boat speed, wind, current and trim, with various exercises programmed in to deal with real life on-the-water situations. We plan to have this equipment available for the public to try their skill at Trail Bay Mall, Sechelt on 4 March, and Sunnycrest Mall, Gibsons on 11 March.
We offer courses fall, winter and spring. Click here for a quick peek at what's courses and workshops are coming up soon.
