Updates from the Chief: CPS-ECP Vision, Mission, Values

CPS Vision

Aug 9, 2016

Your Board of Directors has, over the last year, been focusing on gathering information and developing ideas for the future priorities to guide our activities. A key part of those discussions and deliberations has been the renewal of our common, shared core statements of what we strive for, how we can achieve that, and what we believe in. The Board recently approved renewed statements of the CPS-ECP Vision: defining what we are, the CPS-ECP Mission: indicating what we do to achieve our vision, and the CPS-ECP Values: proclaiming what keeps us strong. You can find these posted on our CPS-ECP website. These build on our proud traditions and all of the Board members appreciate the discussions they held with you, at their own and other Squadrons or Districts, which enriched and advanced our discussions. These renewed Vision, Mission and Values Statements should serve us well as a grounding and a focus that takes us into a successful future.

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.
