Barrie and Sandra Letts started cruising the BC coast in the mid 1990s aboard their 26 ft Micmac pocket cruiser Moonshadow. As a Millennium project they completed a 32 day circumnavigation of Vancouver Island. In 2001 they purchased “their” perfect world cruiser, a Stan Huntingford Tradewind 34 (aka True North 34) Passat II.

Since July 1st, 2007 they have sailed the coasts of North America from the top of Pit Island (Prince Rupert) to Fredricton, NB (via the Panama Canal), spent four seasons in the NW Caribbean, crossed the Atlantic Ocean, circumnavigated the North Sea, cruised the Atlantic Coast of Europe and sailed the Western Mediterranean.

BCA Members since February, 2006 (Fleet of 2007), both have earned BCA Coastal 999 and Offshore awards.

Following the experience of a tense night passage from Tangier to Gibraltar, join Barrie and Sandra as they lead us through three seasons of sailing in the Western Mediterranean, visiting the Islas Baleares (Balearic Islands of Ibiza, Mallorca & Menorca) Spain; Sargegna (Sardinia), Italy; Corse (Corsica) France; Elba and Sicilia (Sicily) in Italy, and Malta.

Join us for the first club night of the 2019–2020 season as Barrie and Sandra discuss their adventures, passages, anchorages, marinas, weather, history, culture, friends and—food and wine!!


Doors at 7, brief meeting at 7:30, presentation immediately to follow. BCA members: $5, Non-members: $10.
