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.

With its high, flared bow, this 7.70 metres vessel promises not only a head-turning aesthetic but also a sturdy, reliable performance on the open sea. One of the standout features of this vessel is its deep “V” hull, boasting a 22-degree deadrise, designed to ensure a secure and dry journey, even when navigating through rough waters.

Serious Fun at the St. Maarten Heineken Regatta

By Allegra Smith-Herriott

As the plane started its descent, bright blue skies gave way to crystal clear turquoise waters as we skimmed over the famous Maho Beach. Exiting the airport, I was hit with a wall of warm salty air from the northeast trade winds. Nothing compares to arriving in the Caribbean.

From the airport, I headed to the Regatta Village in Port de Plaisance. Wednesday being ‘Day 0’ was registration day of the Regatta. Teams were out on the water to shake out sails, on the docks making last-minute preparations and in the Regatta Village for registration and most importantly picking up their cases of Heineken.
