From the desk of the
When I was a youth in England the thought of owning a boat was a dream that you never thought would come true.
When I got to be 40 I moved to Powell River, bought a Catalina 27, raced and cruised it with my kids and then also with Winnie. We all had terrific fun gunk holing around the coast right here on our doorstep.
Then I cruised a bigger boat to Mexico (I was going around the world but I (in sailors terms) swallowed the anchor. That means I quit in Mexico and came home.
However we did realize the dream of our lives.
Whilst I was sitting in the sun in Mexico I was reading a Cruising magazine, “The best places to cruise in the world” was the article.
#1 was somewhere out of reach, I can’t remember where???
#2 was the Pacific North West. Yes right here, wow!!.
Now we have a new Harbour, we have our boats back in the water and we are embarking on a new cruising season.
One where you just go down to the harbour right on your doorstep and within 20 minutes you are out on the water with the motor on or the sails up.
Are we lucky or what?
The yacht Club is going full steam ahead, and I know you have heard from Gerard, our Commodore, all the great things that have happened and are happening.
We have a super Club Executive who have worked very hard to get things going.
- The youth sailing program
- The rental of fun sailing dinghy’s when you want them
- The cruising
- The fun nights
- And we are going to start again with the Full Keel Racing
We took on a little debt to get things moving but the repayment is in full swing and our financial situation is great. Thank in no small way to Deidre our social/cruising director also taking on the mantle of fund Raiser.
I know you want to be part of the action, the people that make things happen.
There are a lot of vibrant motivating people in the club.
The Annual General Meeting is held in March every year; to comply with the Societies Act for Non Profit Organizations we have to hold elections at that time.
If you would like to be nominated for a position on the Executive, please,

Together we can have fun and make things happen
