    OBSERVERS & OBSERVER TRAINING
    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.
