Announcing our first Whitby Brewer Sailboat Association Zoom meeting! We can introduce ourselves and chat about how the pandemic has impacted cruising. I would also like to invite people to sign up to share topics for future meetings

The first session will be held on 21 January at 9PM ET/6PM PT.

I know this might not be convenient for folks in the Eastern Hemisphere, let's talk about a good time for you all.

I would add a topic for this meeting or a future one. "Cuising licences for the US" Many Canadians like me (who store in the US but leave each season) will not cruise this winter season, so the current licence will expire before we leave the US next season. Does anyone know if extensions will be granted, or other ways to stay legal?

The proposed date and time work for me.

Folks, since the Association stopped collecting dues (at least a decade ago), we've been spending our bank account down on maintenance for the WBSA website. There's enough in the fund for several years, still.
Every Whitby-Brewer Owner is a member of the Association.
I'd like to make a motion that we spend $149.90/year for a Zoom license, so we can have more time for our monthly meetings.
I have a second, from Steven Fred Lott.

You can either vote/comment here in the Froum, or on the post in our Facebook group.

As requested, we will vary the times/days to allow folks from different time zones to participate.

The next gathering will be 20 March 2021 at 3 PM ET.

The invite is the same one we used last night.

The gathering invite is now available to registered boat owners (including former boat owners) on the WBSA site. This is not to exclude folks who are shopping or just interested in the boats - you folks are definitely welcome, I just don't want the invite publicly available.

If you are registered on the WBSA site, are a boat owner, and can't see the "Owners Only" tab, let me know and I'll pry your boat history from you and grant you access.
If you want the invite, please email me at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
I'll post a reminder the day before. Looking forward to chatting with all y'all!

Thanks to all who participated in last night's call!

Our next gathering will be on Saturday, 22 May at 15:00 ET

We'd like to move past just a general Q&A session and invite presentations on remodeling, maintenance or sailing (etc.) topics. The presentation doesn't have to be long. We, hopefully, have one queued up on a water maker installation so far. 
Please look around at your projects and bring something to share, if you can.
I'll send a reminder the day before and can send the Zoom link to anyone who needs it.

Our monthly call is this Saturday. Does anyone have any presentations to share that I can put on an agenda?
They can be on any boat-related topic and any length. Even 5 minutes can be informative.

Hi, just put together a short presentation on replacing the ladder with stairs. If it's too late, next time will work. It's a PowerPoint so I can share my screen.
