April 1, 2015

Steve Killing, one of Canada’s best known yacht designers is coming to talk about his “new” projects. Maybe with some questions, he would talk about such recent famous design files...America’s Cup, Class C Catamarans, Quest...

April 8, 2015

Gordon Champion was part of the group that somehow helped resurrect the “Trillium” which at the time was abandoned in one of the Island lagoons. A story of collective effort to save some of our “heritage” waterfront elements.

April 15, 2015 - last for the year

By this time, the Pan Am sailing events are about to be part of the 2015 year. David Howard who is the organizing force, will, if possible, come to Shellbacks to tell us about the organization, the events, the competitors and maybe some inside “baseball”. And that is the 2015 season for the Shellback Club. Shellbacks is a worthwhile voice in the world of all kinds of sailing and maritime adventure... presenting a weekly event for 25 fall and winter dates, Shellbacks can keep this 82 year record rolling with vigor and variety by... first of all coming.... inviting others, offering to talk to the group and helping with the organization of the “weekly” events. Participation is always helpful. Be a Shellback, come a lot, bring friends and enjoy the company.   By Dianne Leggatt, Skipper of Shellbacks
