To All Sunshine Coast Squadron CPS Members

As indicated in the last Nautical News, Gibsons Yacht Club, with whom we are affiliated  has purchased a “Club Boat” which is a 28 foot Grampian sailboat with moorage in Gibsons Marina.  A description of the boat is attached to this e-mail.  It is hoped that the Club Boat will be of interest to the following groups of people that may become “Club Boat Members”:


·         Existing GYC Social Members that want to get out on the water and/or cruise with club members.

·         Younger families and novice boaters that aren’t ready to make the financial commitment of full boat ownership.

·         Older boaters who want to retire from full time boat ownership but that still have an interest in getting out on the water.

The Board has decided to charge “Club Boat Members” an annual fee of $500.  (CPS members who are not GYC members would have to join GYC in order to become Club Boat Members.)  They will need to have their Pleasure Craft Operators Certificate (PCOC), be checked out by Gord Cudlipp (or another Club representative) and sign a liability waiver.


 There will be a maximum of 15 Club Boat Members, which will give each member at least one week of full time boat use during the prime season from May 15th to September 15th.   Clearly, if there are less than 15 members or the boat is unbooked, it can be signed out, and it will be available all year.


Gord Cudlipp will be in charge of the Club Boat. The boat is in slip F5 at Gibsons Marina.  If you would like to contact Gord to get into the marina or sign up, his mobile phone number is (604)740-7264 or he can also be reached at mailto:marlenegord@telus.net
