New Member Benefit for CPS-ECP Family Members

Canadian Yachting

Jan 25, 2018

Canadian Yachting Magazine is providing a new member benefit for all CPS-ECP family members starting with the February 2018 issue of the magazine. 

Currently, one copy of Canadian Yachting is delivered to the mailing address of the primary family member for CPS-ECP members, for each issue of the magazine. All other family members share that one copy in their household.

As a benefit to CPS-ECP family members, a free digital version of Canadian Yachting will now be delivered by email through CPS-ECP, to all other CPS-ECP family members with a valid email address registered with CPS-ECP. Family members will now have direct access to Canadian Yachting and the Port Hole for every issue. The primary family member will continue to receive the printed magazine at their current mailing address.

Family members will have the option to unsubscribe from receiving the magazine if they wish, and family members who currently do not have a valid email address on record with CPS-ECP are encouraged to go online and update their member profile in order to begin to receive their digital copy of Canadian Yachting right away. Those who need assistance to update or register their email address should contact Stella Mbuyi at the National office by email:

They have all been exceptional yachts, but this is the one I would most want to own myself. It’s a personal choice and a matter of taste as to whether you would prefer to have a sedan express model or a flybridge but in my opinion, the flybridge layout offers some wonderful attributes.

We met with Neptunus Managing Director Jan Willem De Jong this past fall to take the new Neptunus 650F out in Lake Ontario.

The Other Virgin Islands

Sunset off St John

By Mark Stevens

I was first seduced by the United States Virgin Islands during a ferry ride from St. Thomas to Tortola to begin one of our earliest British Virgin Islands charters nearly twenty years ago.

A perfect sunset off St. John with St. Thomas views for backdrop.

Clearing Pillsbury Sound, surrounded by voluptuous emerald mountains as the ferry sliced through royal blue waters, I was struck by the unspoiled ambiance of St. John, the island gliding past our starboard beam and the irresistible charm of a village called Cruz Bay visible from our quarter stern.
