Invitation to BCA Members from Martin 242 Fleet

Posted By Jennifer Handley, March 20, 2014

The Vancouver M242 Fleet is actively looking for keen sailors who want to tune up their racing skills with the largest and most active One Design Keel boat fleet in the the Pacific Northwest.  BCA members who are interested in racing are invited to an Open House on Sun April 6 2014 at Royal Vancouver Yacht Club (see poster attached at bottom of this post).  

M242 Fleet One sailors race from April to October, every Wednesday night in One Design races run by RVYC. They also race in monthly Round the Buoys regattas as well as some long distance races. 

The April 6 Open House is free and offers a great opportunity for sailors to meet the M242 skippers in the fleet who are looking for crew for the upcoming season. 

Questions about the Open House can be directed to Alan Sturgess, Fleet Captain M242 Fleet One ( For more information about the M242 fleet and its racing schedule:
