From CPS-ECP to All Members:
Our Patron HRH Prince Philip, our sincere condolences

It’s with great sadness that we acknowledge the passing of our Patron HRH The Duke of Edinburgh. It was our great honour.
On the occasion of our 70th Anniversary in 2008, his message to us:

Messing about in boats’ sounds harmless enough, but experienced yachtsmen know only too well that proper initial training makes for a safer and more enjoyable experience.

HRH Prince Phillip

De CPS-ECP à tous les membres:
Notre Parrain SAR le Prince Philip, nos condoléences.

C'est avec une grande tristesse que nous apprenons le décès de notre parrain, SAR le Duc d'Édimbourg. C'était notre grand honneur de l’avoir comme parrain.

À l'occasion de notre 70e anniversaire en 2008, il nous a adressé un message :

«Conduire un bateau de manière nonchalante peut sembler inoffensif, mais les plaisanciers expérimentés ne savent que trop bien à quel point une formation initiale adéquate permet de vivre une expérience plus sûre et plus agréable.»

For many of us, living on the west coast of Canada means getting out on the water and enjoying the incredible spectacle of the nature that surrounds us. For others that enjoyment extends into a passion. A passion to understand and protect that marine environment.

 

MERS 240x74The Marine Education and Research Society (MERS) is one such group with a passion to understand and protect. With a focus on Humpback and Minke whales, MERS also works to reduce harm to other marine species and to educate the public on how to best protect our natural gifts.

Squadron Cruises

A Maritime Mobile Service Identity is a nine-digit number that uniquely identifies your boat, you the owner and your contact information. Each Digital Selective Calling radio needs to be registered and assigned an MMSI number. Your DSC radio can be used to send a distress alert to the Coast Guard and nearby vessels (with DSC radios in receiving range) or to selectively contact another vessel when you know its MMSI number.

If you have relatively new VHF radio in your boat, chances are it is equipped with Digital Select Calling or DSC. The most important feature of a VHF DSC radio is that you can send a Distress Alert which will tell the Coast Guard and other boaters in your area that you require immediate assistance.

As a member of the Canadian Power and Sail Squadrons there is a long list of perks for YOU!

Okay, I have your attention and I have about ten seconds to keep your attention, here goes the elevator version of why you should renew your Fraser Squadron membership.

In many cases the amount of money you save on boat insurance will pay for your CPS membership, and as an additional perk, as a member of Fraser Squadron you will receive six copies of Pacific Yachting every year.

Well, that's six copies of Pacific Yachting for free. But, I see you are a discerning boater and you want more . . .

Well we have more for you.
