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”.
The MSA Skippers cane through for the “Friends of Mactaquac” by showing up in numbers and taking 60 people for a sail. Thanks to the MSA members who came out to organize our involvement and in particular to the ones who skippered for the day… John T. John B. Dave M, Guy H, Kim, Trevor and Helen R, Rod P,Dino K, and Ben J.
Here we see a few pics of our MSA All Stars… thanks.
Calling all Stations….
This is your Past Commodore.
The May 04 AGM had a great turn out and resulted in your installing Kim P. as Commodore and Guy H. as Vice Commodore.
More on the full executive and committee members in a follow up Blog from you new Commodore. Kim P.
Here is the Commodore’s Report as presented (except I don’t use last names on the internet)
As for my future Blogging… well, I have to work that out with the new executive and commodore. As discussed at the AGM, I’m willing to work on increasing MSA membership numbers, encouraging MSA member involvement in activities, and do some PR for the MSA. Blogging may be a useful tool. Stay tuned…
Ahoy all… here is an important note on the the 2011 crane-in for the Skipper of the Peace of Mind, and the King of the Crane, Guy. Thanks Guy for sending out this first notice.
Hope you had a great winter and you will be ready to haul-in on Friday, May 20, 2011. I’m sure most of you can’t wait to get on the water……
Please look at the the Fall 2010 Haul-Out list found below and if you know of anyone who is not on the list but wants to crane in a the MSA please let me know and provide the person’s phone number or email address. If you know of anyone who will not be hauling-in besides Peter Carlisle, please let me know.
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

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)
