Another year and the Watches have been nominated and elected. Commodore Doherty continues her command of the motley crew of offshore sailors, the dreamers, doers and doners. Currents Magazine continues. Back on the Giri in the cold harbor I was glad to join the warmth and good cheer of sailors come together to maintain an institution that has served so many of us who have set out to cross big oceans in little boats. It was good to see Eric who has moved from Steveston's over to Poco Marine in Port Coquitlam. It's been nearly 8 years since Laura and I collected all the advertising revenues for Currents and the Directory. Since they've divided that job and hired people to fill the position we'd done voluntarily taking over from the volunteers before us. Good to see old faces. The internet site and message board are really doing well. Hopefully this year I'll make a rendezvous.
