Subject: honey, where did all the furniture go?

Well, the holiday gremlins are hard at work morphing our Granville Island office from the 'just moved in look' to a boating lifestyle showcase. The office renovation is full speed ahead because these guys don't know what the word holiday means!  

So, the office is a little 'less than furnished' and we are camped out at the JIB SET Vancouver Sailing Club clubhouse across the street. We have no phones, computers or internet for that matter back at the office.  If you need to call, try our JIB SET phone number first - 604.789.6576 

Where's all the furniture in this picture?

At the same time, the hood is up on the website booking/reservation engine (basically, it doesn't work at the moment).  As the website mechanics close the hood, we'll have a new engine driving our online sales with all the security and shopping features to make it a great experience for boat charters and boating courses.

Subject: Welcome False Creek Fuel Dock

Welcome back False Creek Fuel Dock.  The arrival of False Creek Fuels marks the end of a difficult period for charters and boating in and around Vancouver.  We've been toting around fuel and working hard around the problem of no fuel dock in False Creek.  Now, we have a shiny revamped facility for fueling right back where the previous operator closed up a few years back - at the south side of the Burrard Street Bridge.  Charter clients from Granville Island will find this very convenient - charter operators can get a few extra moments of shut eye with the resulting convenience of this facility.  A warm welcome to FALSE CREEK FUELS!

Subject: TOP FUN instructor awards and class of 2011

Congratulations to Marla Hedman and Stephen DesRoches, our first two TOP FUN instructors - celebrated last night at our annual pre-season instructor meeting.   Marla and Stephen have been working - occasionally as a team as you will see here - to generate spectacular courses here at Cooper.  We have to admit some of their feats can only be described as 'magic' - but keep up the great work and here's hoping the magic dust washes over to the 'runners up' and our new instructors!

We also want to congratulate the batch of 'freshly minted' instructors from the January class under the guidance of David West

The November class, led by Oliver Woolcock and James Johnstone were a bit camera shy except for this burn around the bay on a Farr 40.


Wait a moment - FARR 40? - perhaps this group is well on their way to TOP FUN status?

Subject: Torch runs through Granville Island

Well, it's certainly heating up here - a bunch of people seem really excited with this torch running by the office.  Check out the video bottom left side of our web site

Not sure if it is more exciting than the America's Cup on now in Valencia - but certainly exciting for some.
