Announcement from Commodore Doug Dobbyn,  April 14, 2020

Lasqueti Yacht Club Members:

The COVID-19 pandemic has redefined how we live our lives, impacting each of us in ways that we could never have imagined.

The Lasqueti Yacht Club’s focus will be the safety of our Club Members and your Executive Team. The club will temporarily hold off all boating and social events for the remainder of 2020. Your 2020 membership dues will also be put on hold.

We will get through this epidemic together, until then stay safe, healthy, and best wishes.

Regards Commodore Doug
