Marine Electronics: Personal Observations, Experiences and Opinions  ::  Educational Opportunities


RVYC Monthly Presentation Series

Marine Electronics: Personal Observations, Experiences and Opinions by Roger C. Palmer

A free educational event in the Main Lounge - registration not required. 


Our presenter this evening is Roger Palmer, who has belonged to RVYC for 25 years. 

Roger has extensive boating experience: power, sail, racing, cruising, coastal, inland, and offshore.  He is an electronic engineer, and has worked at (or founded) several "high tech" companies.

Roger has been designing, using, or specifying marine electronics for almost 60 years, and he has monitored developments in the industry for much of its existence.

Tonight's presentation will follow Roger's involvement in the field from the late 50's, and will focus on equipment that he has installed and used on his various boats over the years up to the present day. He promises to include lots of personal opinions as he tells the story!

Cruising Dinner  ::  Cruising & Dinners


RVYC’s First Spring Cruising Dinner

Thursday, February 28, 2019 

Cruising on Two Wheels from Bangkok to Saigon 

How would you celebrate your 40th anniversary? Perhaps a ruby ring? Or the gift of a two-week cycling trip from Bangkok to Saigon? Well, for better or worse - the oldyweds Don & Joan Thain joined forces with fellow members Don Jonsson and Sue Leuchter to do just that last spring. You’ll discover the joys of night bicycling in Bangkok where crazy traffic whizzes about and— for obvious reasons—NOBODY bicycles.  

Cambodia had many fascinating places to reconnoitre on two wheels including a jungle ride to the temple featured in Laura Croft's Tomb Raider. In Vietnam’s Mekong Delta, we stayed with a family and helped prepare spring rolls and share in a cooking class. We had a 100% survival rate despite the threats of malaria, dengue fever and crocodiles. Yes, you too can find out if this type of adventure is for you and your mate!
