CONGRATULATIONS to Andreas Demone and crew of Bella Rena!

It was clearly kind of Fleet One to 'ease' Andreas into the Fleet, setting him atop the leader board in the first race of the season.  Winds were somewhat shifty and no one seems to have found the oil spill that had all our politicians a twitter over the past week.

High point scoring for our season championship will be posted under FLEET ONE IN-BAY SERIES once the series is set up. The seven competitors will be given double the points for this event.  

Here are HIGH POINT results:

Gin Pole

Need a hand with your mast?  

Fleet One’s Gin Pole can be an uplifting experience!

GIN POLES PROCURED FOR LIFTING MASTS

The Fleet has recently constructed a gin pole (see photos) for lifting masts out of boats while they are on trailers or in the water, building on a design that Tim Slaney developed.

One gin pole combo will be stored at Kits Yacht Club on the south-eastern section of the Club on a mast rack (see photo), and is intended for anyone in the Fleet to use.

Boats moored in False Creek or Burrard Inlet can make arrangements to pick up the gin pole via the assistance of Kits Yacht Club 242 members (probably via a handoff at the Kits floating dock) or by contacting Steve Haynes, Manager, at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or  (604) 730-1646.

Furthermore, Tim Slaney has graciously agreed to lend out his gin pole to anyone at RVYC that wishes to borrow it. He can be reached at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or (604) 315-5105.

A number of Fleet members have used Tim's straight-forward gin pole setup, so feel free to contact them for information re how to use the poles. They include Jim Hyslop, Tim Slaney, Michael Clements, Peter Wealick, and Alan Sturgess, among others.

There are a few items that each boat needs to supply to use the hollow gin poles, which fit over top of the forward shroud u-bolts:

1. Two spinnaker sheets or jib sheets to stabilize the pole setup fore and aft on the boat (see photo).

2. A mainsheet or spinnaker sheet to hoist the mast out of the boat

3. A reasonably strong turning block that is attached to one of the aft shroud u-bolts so that the lifting rope can be extended to one of the winches.

One final note is that the gin poles should be angled slightly forward on the boat so the mast can be easily lifted out (see attached photo)


For any detailed questions or assistance, contact Michael Clements at 778-968-1713.
