HBSC Webinars

With the postponement of the club’s Sail Canada Basic Coastal Navigation course due to COVID-19, we have been looking at alternative ways to keep members engaged and learning. CYA Instructor and HBSC member Jeff Cassidy has prepared portions of his course that will be presented online. We will be hosting FREE interactive seminars over the next few months. All HBSC members are welcome to join in while Jeff covers basic navigation for cruisers and day sailors. 

Saturday May 30th 7:30pm.

This week Jeff will be talking about the sights and sounds that make up navigation aids to regulate boating traffic. This one is good for anyone in any type of vessel on the water. Info on how to join the webinar can be found here. As always, there will surely be a little social time mixed in.

Following Jeff’s navigation session we will be opening up the floor to anyone who wants to chat. At HBSC, we pride ourselves on being a very social club so rather than a Friday Night Friendly, I’m calling it the Saturday Night Social! 

We will be using WebEx for this seminar which is available for tablets, smartphones, desktops PC’s, and laptops. We suggest that you install the WebEx app on whatever device you chose to use as it offers more functionality than the browser version(link below). We will be showing charts and figures so the larger the screen the better.
