    1. Press Release
    2. IPBA Guide for Observers (rtf)
    3. Outline of the Observer Duties (rtf)

    Anyone can be an observer and the public is invited and encouraged to participate. We need at least 60 observers. This is an opportunity for a non-boater to get a ride on a yacht and see the area from a different perspective.

    Observer training will be conducted by Capt Rob Bruins on Feb. 15th 2006 (Wednesday) at BYC starting at 7 pm.
