We Need Your Competitions Entries

CPS Competitions Entries

Sept 21, 2016

The days are flying by, and it will soon be the last week in October, and the CPS-ECP National Conference 2016 will be underway. One of the best parts of the conference is always the Competitions. We want the 2016 Competitions to be very successful, but to date, I have received only two entries, and one promise of an entry.

The competitions are held to enable District and Squadron members to showcase their ideas and experiences in both inspiring and enabling students to learn more easily, to ensure they develop safe boating skills, but also better explore the waterways and increase their boating enjoyment.

The craft/art /publications section appeals to all people- and we never know what media publication, photo, place mat, quilt, or story will inspire creativity and joy in ourselves and others.

Districts, Squadrons and members – please rustle the sails and tap the bows of all our members! We all know members who have developed very special projects.

Sharing those special projects helps everyone.

Deadline for entries is October 1, 2016.

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.

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.
