Same Newsletter, Different Ben
After more than three years at the helm of this newsletter, Ben van Drimmelen is handing over the paddle and moving on to other projects. But don't fear, dear reader, because the name on the Editor's boat won't change! Ben Fast is taking over the account and looks forward to bringing you your monthly dose of sea water without too many splutters or capsizes.
I, Ben (the new one) am a newer SISKA member, having joined in January 2018 after buying my first boat in June 2017. I grew up with sea kayaks in my family, but only fully jumped in with this purchase and am eager to learn more as I go along. In my day job I work with museums and heritage tourism organizations across BC, and when out of the office I play bass in The Carlines, am a second year curler, and listen to podcasts.
A big thanks to Ben van Drimmelen for his work on this newsletter and for helping make this transition a smooth one. I look forward to sharing in the knowledge and experience of this club's membership, and probably trying one too many kayak puns along the way!
