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.

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.
