Planning an Offshore Passage - then Join Fleet!

 

Fleet membership is very beneficial to members who are actively planning an offshore trip.

Fleet consists of BCA members who are planning to leave for offshore in the next few years. They arrange programs to aid in the preparation for their voyages. Some programs consist of panels of BCA members who have been offshore where they discuss and compare their experiences. Other programs cover topics of interest such as safety at sea, radio communications, weather, routing, insurance, etc, and are presented by local experts either in the association or in related marine trades. These monthly, and often more frequent, meetings serve to provide mutual support in solving the problems of preparing for their voyages. By means of these meetings and various social gatherings they get to know their fellow adventurers who will become strong friends as they meet again in distant ports.

Membership in Fleet groups is available to all members other than online members and costs $50-$60,  depending on the chapter, per boat per year.
