Presentations in 2019

As 2018 draws to a close and we get ready for the year ahead, I would like to request suggestions for presentations at membership meetings. In the past we have head presentations such as “How (not) to lose a dinghy”, “Understanding Marine Weather”, “Cruising in the Caribbean”, “All About Anchoring”, “Identifying and Reporting Cetacean Sightings”, “Situational Awareness”, and “New DFO Marine Mammal Regulations”. If you have any suggestions concerning a possible presentation, or would like to give a presentation, please feel free to email me directly,

Happy New Year to all!
