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!

An Abacos Adventure

Great Guana CayBy Mark Stevens; Photos by Sharon Matthew-Stevens

It’s a perfect Sunday morning jaunt.

We’re gliding through green-blue waters, colours so vivid and bright they hurt your eyes. We’re set for a close reach out of a harbour guarded by a necklace of tiny emerald islands decorated by palms that dance in fifteen knots of wind.

Our boat, “Tropical Escape II” (perfect name for both the boat and our adventure), is a 44-foot Robertson and Caine catamaran, chartered from Sunsail’s Marsh Harbour base on Bahamas’ Great Abaco Island.

Jeanneau NC 795 – designed in France and perfect for Canada

Jeanneau NC 795By Glen Cairns

After a period of record breaking hot and humid weather we had a dose of more traditional east coast conditions for our test run aboard the Jeanneau NC 795, with steady drizzle and a 15 – 20 knot south east breeze kicking up a short chop on Halifax’s Bedford Basin.

Last fall the management team from Dartmouth based Seamasters Services Limited, Chris Mills and Tara Mills along with sales manager Dave Trott, had an introduction to Jeanneau’s NC line at Yamaha’s fall gathering in Ontario.
