ISAF Survival At Sea Course


Coming across a Kijijij add for a weekend International Sailing Federation (ISAF) Survival at Sea Course is sure to get any sailor’s interest during a frosty February.

Make it a February when the ski hill just got stripped of some primo snow and interest turns into a remarkable February 8-9 weekend in Charlottetown.

The course was billed as “…2 days of theoretical and practical personal offshore safety and sea survival training that prepares participants to negotiate passage making and ocean racing with competence and confidence”.

Calling all Stations,

This is the Work of Art’s Skipper, AKA The Piece of Work.

Well, we had a record 3 groundings at Walinack Cove in the last 24 hours but at 3 pm the rains began in earnest so no more worries there.

As you can see, NB Power has a new holding company called DrainItCo which pulled a plug somewhere anddropped the Head Pond 4 feet.

Merci, NB Powers

Merci, NB Powers

It was quite something…

The dock became a ramp!

Fredericton Power and Sail Squadron’s Winter Boating Talk “Sail and Rope Care” with Dave Martin of Flyer Products

Calling all stations….

This is the “Outgoing Commodore”

On Tuesday March 15 the Fredericton Power and Sail Squadron hosted Dave Martin of Flyer Products on the third of their “Winter Boating Talks”.

These have been very popular and the quality of the speakers has been fantastic. The willingness of these busy people to give up an evening to present says a lot about the boating community in Fredericton.

Dave owns and operates Flyer Products on Timothy Dr. out on the Hanwell Rd. His number should be programmed into your phone so here it is Phone 459 7077 and Fax 459 1705

Fredericton Power and Sail Sqdn Presents John Beal and the Caribbean 1500

Calling all stations… this is the outgoing commodore.

The Fredericton Power and Sail Squadron’s second speaker night of the winter was another great success.

It was a dark and stormy night on Wednesday, January 12 when 35 people gathered to hear John Beal deliver an outstanding presentation on his participation on the 2010 Caribbean 1500 (nm).

Members of the MSA came out in good numbers (well over a dozen) and Harold B. takes home an MSA tee shirt. (Harold you will have to wait until the boat house reopens as the shirts is in the MSA locker… sorry)
