Spring has come, and we’ll keep having even more sailing days! Not that winter has slowed us down too much – it’s been a good season, with decent weather coming very regularly! Here are a few videos – our club boats Ragna and Enke on Saturday, and a couple of our members on Anja today. Our club boats are always available for OSBUG members – please be sure to book the boats on our Google calendar.
I hope you got to see the presentation on Thursday, about the SS Master tugboat – it was fascinating! In case you didn’t see it, or if you want to see it again, you can get a bit of the story here. I would encourage you all to support the SS Master Society in preserving this important part of BC maritime history, the last known wooden steam-powered tugboat in the world!
Our friends at the Vancouver Maritime Museum have just announced a fascinating presentation about the SS Master, the wonderful wooden steam-powered tugboat, built in False Creek in 1922. If you’ve ever been aboard, and visited that awesome engine-room, you’ll want to hear more about it, and enjoy the virtual tour. Tickets are $25, or spend an extra $5 to join the SS Master Society, and support their efforts to preserve and restore this treasure.
