Volunteer

We are all volunteers in CPS-ECP but some of our volunteers go far beyond what is taken for normal. These people often become an integral part of the Squadron or District and contribute a great deal to the well-being of CPS-ECP. Deborah Churchill of the Avalon Squadron, Atlantic District, is one these special people.

A long-time member of Avalon Squadron, Deborah has always dedicated a great deal of time and energy into CPS-ECP and for the last eight years has been the Squadron’s Educational Officer organizing the courses, instructors, venues and a host of other things all related to extending the outreach of CPS-ECP into the local community of St. John’s, Newfoundland. She has also been active in the Atlantic District serving in several positions up to and including District Commander. Deborah has had lots of National exposure as well as she is a past member of the National Nominating Committee and the Editorial Committee. Deborah is never shy about taking on more work!

Deborah continues to advocate for her Squadron at the Atlantic District level and is now the Secretary. As well, she takes time to make sure that anyone seeking information about CPS-ECP gets a prompt, courteous and informative reply to their inquiry. Congratulations Deborah for a job very well done and CPS-ECP is so much better for all your dedicated efforts on so many fronts!

How to be as Polite as a Canadian at Gulf Island Marine Park Anchorages

Gulf Island Marine ParkStory and photos by Catherine Dook

One summer I sold ice cream and knick-knacks at Montague Harbour Marina. I was standing behind the counter one day, when the phone rang. “There’s a boat at anchor in the middle of the bay that’s been playing loud music for three hours,” complained an irate-sounding male voice. “Can you make them stop?”

“Um, no,” I replied. “The marina has no jurisdiction over the anchorage. Besides, my only weapon is a till.” The man hung up on me.

Now when you think about it, you can understand why the poor fellow was annoyed.

Cruisers Yachts Cantius 42

Cruisers Yachts Cantius 42By John Armstrong and Andy Adams 

The latest new model from Cruisers Yacht sis the Cantius 42 and this yacht made its debut in the fall of 2017, at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show. We had the pleasure of going all through this newest Cantius there and clearly, the Cruisers Yachts people continue to refine and expand on all the features that have made the Cantius line such a success.

The new 42 continues the Cantius family resemblance with handsome and distinctive lines including a big section of hull side glazing port and starboard that makes the full-beam mid-ship master stateroom feel very bright and open.
