2018 Fraser Squadron Christmas Party
Join us for an evening of fun and camaraderie. Once again the evening will be hosted by Bob with a night full of entertainment.
Dinner is catered this year so it's important to pre-register so we can let the caterer know the final head count.
Fraser Squadron will be hosting a St. Johns Ambulance CPR Session.
Sometimes getting home is not just about seamanship and nautical knowledge. If you, your significant other, or one of your crew was to suffer a cardiac arrest, is there somebody who can save them? CPR is an essential tool in your first aid knowledge. Modern AED devices are very easy to operate but a fundamental knowledge of the equipment is desirable.

In 2014 Fraser Sqaudron moved to a one day format for the Marine VHF course. This format has proven wildly popular. As a result we offer the class several times a year.
The one day Marine VHF course is a comprehensive and practical course focusing on all aspects of maritime radio procedures complete with simulated practice calls. Included is information on the VHF-DSC feature found on most new VHF radios. Industry Canada's Restricted Radiotelephone Operator's Certificate Exam is written at the end of the class. On successful completion, students receive a restricted Marine Operators Certificate.
The course is delivered in two parts: The first half of the session covers VHF operation and DCS specific features are covered later.
Course dates for 2019 include:
Saturday January 19th - (8:30AM to 3:00PM)
Thursday February 21st - (6:00PM to 10:00PM)

Okay, I have your attention and I have about ten seconds to keep your attention, here goes the elevator version of why you should renew your Fraser Squadron membership.
In many cases the amount of money you save on boat insurance will pay for your CPS membership, and as an additional perk, as a member of Fraser Squadron you will receive six copies of Pacific Yachting every year.
