39°F in Central Illinois today, but it's a balmy 77°F in Tortola, British Virgin Islands! And the Mid-Illini Sail and Power Squadron 2017 BVI Flotilla Caribbean Charter Cruise is just one short week away! CLSA and Mid-Illini have coordinated teaching events in the classroom, as well as on the water training at the lake in preparation for the 35 person, 8 boat flotilla; from the Provisioning and What to Pack Seminars, electronic navigation equipment tutorial, to practice anchoring and catching mooring balls, and learning how to operate an inflatable dinghy, (not to mention practice drinking Pain Killers at several Attitude Adjustments…) the flotilla is ready to set sail! Fair winds to the BVI sailors!
