The Vancouver International Boat Show is welcoming aspiring female mariners and seasoned boating enthusiasts to enjoy the 2020 “Women’s Day” on Saturday, February 8.
Featuring a roster of experienced professionals, the program includes a full day of informative boating seminars and guest speakers designed to educate and inspire women who are looking to learn more about the boating lifestyle, while also expanding the existing on-board knowledge of those who already have an active interest.
This year’s keynote speaker is Elizabeth Brown-Shaw, who recently returned from a seven-year, 14 country journey around the Pacific with her husband and three children (two children at the time they set sail!). Her story will not only inspire but will educate boaters on both the challenges and rewards of a life at sea.
With innovations being made each year and an array of options to choose from, the prospect of purchasing or upgrading your waterborne vehicle can seem daunting. The presentations – for both power and sail – will help beginners get started and offer seasoned boaters a fun refresher. Topics range from onboard solar technology, yacht charters in far off destinations, cooking in small spaces, local destinations, weather and avoiding emergency situations.
Registration is required, tickets are only $99 (GST included), but space is limited. The full day of sessions will take place at BC Place Stadium, and every registrant will receive an amazing gift bag and raffle prize.
