Long Term Planning and Goals

Docks

BCSC is in the early planning stages of a dock system for BCSC. The board is committed to working towards this common goal. Significant fundraising, grants, donations, and volunteer time will be required to make it a reality. Preliminary concept

Fleet

BCSC's biggest asset is our boats. To remain successful, we must constantly be re-investing in our fleets of boats. The majority of our boats need to be replaced after about 10 years of use... and over half of BCSC's boats are nearing that age. Boats are typically bought in fleets to ensure consistency which helps substantially when doing maintenance and ensures that they are identical for our sailors. A fleet of eight boats can cost anywhere from $17,000 to $64,000 depending on the type of boat.

Three year Rotating Fleet Re-Investment

We rotate our annual re-investment between our three fleets: the singlehanded fleet, the doublehanded fleet and the chase boat fleet. Sometimes our goals are a bit bigger than our pockets and we go to the community for additional support.

2011: Single-handed fleet. We purchased four brand new Optis for the new Opti green fleet program.

2012: Double-handed fleet. We bought eight new-to-us Club 420s. Additional funds were raised during an event featuring Gary Jobson.

2013: Chase boat fleet. We replaced approximately 40% of our outboards.

2014: Single-handed fleet. BCSC sold eight Xcites and is purchasing eight brand new Blue Dragon Prams for our youngest (8-10 yr old) sailors.

2015: Double-handed fleet. BCSC is purchasing new North Blue Ribbon sails for the 420 fleet.

Financial Donations

Financial donations are tax deductible. Please consider donating to one of our causes. You choose whether its for a long-term strategy, yearly fleet turnover, or simply to cover our operating costs.
