CatClub Kubbar Campout Coming Up!

October 3, 2010

Well, I’m very pleased with myself! Yesterday we held a passage planning meeting at Derron’s house, and I think it went rather well – although I ended up leading the meeting again!

To put it in context, before arranging the meeting, and sending the email around the catclub, I confirmed the date and time with two people. Derron, the host; and Dave, the Vice Commodore (Expeditions). Well, at least the host made it! The Expeditions Officer found himself stuck at a clashing meeting!

So anyway, I prepared a Mind Map before I went. I only meant it to have one tier, so the whole group could add to it, but I got carried away! I couldn’t help myself. By the time I got there, it had three tiers, with hyperlinks to wind sites, weather sites, tide sites, Google Earth, and our chartplotter. Oh, and I link to Sloop JohnB, by the Beach Boys! I have had so much fun playing with this:

To be fair, it’s double the size now than when the meeting started! It is fantastic for groupwork. Download it now!! I sent it around the group in PDF format, and the Vice Commodore (Expeditions) immediately replied that he was very impressed with it! Yeah… Someone appreciates me!

Just in case – I will paste the chart that shows our route as well. Clearly, you’re not going t be able to see much detail, but you might be able to make out the red line (our route) and all the yellow flashing lights (restricted area.

Let me know if you’re interested, and I can send you a JPEG version x x x
