Arrive Friday evening and join us for coffee and goodies on Saturday morning; registration begins at 9am. The official start is, of course, Happy "Appie" Hour at 5pm on Saturday. In the evening, a sea-faring movie (or two) will be shown.

Sunday we'll have some activities – join if you wish or relax on island or on your boat or walk to the village. The day will be capped off with our usual potluck gathering, with Port Browning Marina providing the roast beef. Prizes and sea shanties will follow dinner.

As usual, please remember to bring your own cutlery, napkins, plates, bowls, cups, etc to the potluck and happy hour events.

Open boat: if your boat is open for visitors at anytime during the weekend, run a tea towel up your rigging and get to know other BCA members.

RSVP here before Friday, July 27 and email Jaqualine Roussin with your boat name and expected number of crew to ensure we can plan for food and activities.
