The New CPS-ECP Membership Card

Nov 9, 2023

At the National Annual General Meeting, CPS-ECP introduced the new Digital Membership Card coming the middle of November 2023.  This will allow the member the flexibility to carry their CPS-ECP Membership card in a digital format on their electronic device, or in a printed version.  This will also allow the member to easily forward a digital copy to a benefits supplier to validate their current membership.

All members, both Regular and Life members, will receive a new current digital card each year automatically when they renew their membership.  The new digital membership card will now have greater value, because it will carry the member’s current membership expiry date.  This will replace the plastic card with no expiry date. The plastic card allowed any person to claim CPS-ECP membership benefits without maintaining a current CPS-ECP membership.  Those members with no internet access will be able to receive a printed version.  Scroll through this PowerPoint presentation to follow the history of the CPS-ECP membership card.

New Boats: Beneteau Oceanis 34.1 – A Sleek, Good -Looking Delight To Sail

By Katherine Stone

There is nothing more that I enjoy than being with friends and messing about in boats. Messing about in brand-new boats on a champagne sailing day on Lake Ontario at the beginning of the summer doesn’t get any better. 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. True to the spirit of the 7th generation Oceanis line, the 34.1 is built in Poland and replaces the 35.1. It is 1,000 lbs lighter, 14 cm narrower and has 29% more sail area.

Telegraph Cove—from Resource Community to Tourist Delight

Text and photos by Marianne Scott

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.
