Commander's Ball

After the new Commander and Bridge are sworn in at the AGM, it is time to celebrate!  It is a time-honoured tradition to host a Commander's Ball.  This is a fun dinner, and toasts to the incoming Commander will be made.  The theme this year is "BEACH".  Come wearing your favourite tropical beach-wear. 

As always, last years "winners" of the Green Jacket and Bent/Gold Brick will pass these awards on to this year's recipients.  There will be a live band so bring your dancing shoes!

Tickets are $75 each and are limited in quantity.  Make sure you book your tickets early!

Please contact Arlene at  If there are still tickets available, Arlene will bring them to the  Bowen Island Easter cruise, but don't delay - they are selling fast!

Sailpast & New Member Welcome

Every year, the squadron members salute their incoming Commander during the long established Sailpast.  We will meet at Willy's Galley for a squadron-sponsored breakfast, then we'll have a Skipper's Meeting to discuss the Sailpast logistics.  Afterward, all the skippers and their crews will cruise their boats into the harbour just outside of Reed Point Marina and "sail past" the new Commander and his/her boat while saluting him/her and waving the Canadian flag.  The parade of boats will carry on to Bedwell Bay to anchor for the afternoon for a fun day on the water.

All members are welcome to come, and we really encourage our new members to come and meet the other squadron members during the breakfast at Willy's and at the Sailpast and raft-up.
