The Baths BVIs_DinnerAshoreAs our Sailing Season draws to a close (alas), it’s time to plan to avoid the blah’s of the
upcoming winter months. At the National there are a number of sailors who plan to be in the
BVI’s next January as part of our traditional group sail. We are organizing another Flotilla for
Jan. 27 – Feb. 6, 2015. Eleven days of pure sailing hedonism.

This will be our 31th Flotilla hosted over the last 23 years, almost all of them into the British
Virgin Islands, and all strongly supported by our Club members. While we invite sailors from
yacht clubs everywhere in Ontario to join us, we traditionally have NYC Members that account
for more than 60% of our participants.

We offer Crew and Skipper Banks providing an opportunity to those who would otherwise not
qualify for a Caribbean Cruise on their own. While some of our skippers will be bringing their
own crew, other skippers will be looking for crew, and we already know that there are NYC crew
looking for skippers.

BVIs_SnorkellingYou don’t have to be an experienced sailor to participate; in fact, you don’t even need to be a
sailor, as we try to provide space aboard for any interested party. Some of the best accolades
for these trips have come from them. There are many NYC Members that can provide you with
their opinions as to the value and pleasure that they have gotten from their participation. Just
ask. I’m sure that they’ll be happy to describe their experiences.

I’ve attached our poster announcing this event, providing the details on how to sign up.
