2014 NP Yacht Owners Rendezvous

NP Yachts Rendezvous


The 2014 NP Yacht Owners Rendezvous at Telegraph Harbour Marina last week was a huge success, attended by 24 boats and 55 people.  Everyone enjoyed the great food, music and Mexican theme.  A good time was had by all and the weather cooperated despite a few downpours on the last day.  Educational and round-table sessions for both women and men were well attended.  Many thanks to Malcolm Ellison of Lightship Mobile Marine for his entertaining and informative sessions, stories and laughs.  

Sponsorship by Trevor Brice of NP Yachts, Malcolm Ellison of Lightship Mobile Marine, Dolphin Insurance and Philbrooks Boatyard and many other businesses was very much appreciated.  We will be providing you with more business throughout the coming year and are already looking forward to the event next year in Anacortes.

There is nothing more that I enjoy than being with friends and messing about in boats.

To have the new owner, Helmuth Strobel and Anchor Yachts dealer Pancho Jimenez aboard made it even more special, as they can also speak to what they truly enjoy about the boat. We keep our own boat in a harbour that has a long waiting list for boats over 35 feet, so this little gem would definitely fit the bill and feels like a much bigger boat.

Telegraph Cove—from Resource Community to Tourist Delight

Telegraph Cove is a small indent situated on Johnstone Strait in the Salish Sea, 15nm southeast of Port McNeill and near Robson Bight, famous for its orca-rubbing beaches. The village has experienced many iterations with a long history—the harbour once served as a summer camp for the Kwakwaka’wakw who fished and hunted here beginning about 8,000 years ago. Many of their descendants still live in the area.

It’s a hopping place in the summer—winter only caretakers remain on site.
