CPS “Twoney” Tuesdays Boating Safety Seminars
(posted Oct 21/16)
Our local CPS RCAF Trenton Squadron begins its series of boating safety seminars in November. An outline of the first (to expand on what is included below) is attached. I have also included a summary of what will be coming during the winter months.
Our “Twoney” Tuesdays begin this year on November 29, 2016 with a presentation about a member of CFB Trenton Yacht Club (you may know him as Greg Tanner) who “emigrated” back to his homeland of the Nova Scotia south shore during the summer, having converted from a power boater to a sailor. Three CFB Trenton Yacht Club members will discuss their time on board as crew members with Captain Greg for the journey from Trenton to St. Margaret’s Bay area via The St. Lawrence River. Click here for more details.
On January 24, 2017 we anticipate having a recently retired member from the JRCC (Joint Rescue and Coordination Centre) located at CFB Trenton speak to us about how this unit works clear across Canada to respond to distress and other calls.
On March 14, 2017 we anticipate having a CFB Trenton Yacht Club member, Dennis Fletcher, talk about Quinte SailAbility—a very unique group of people devoted to teaching the disabled how to sail.
On May 2, 2017 we anticipate having Rob McLeod, currently Cobourg Yacht Club Commodore and Director of their “Learn to Sail Program”.

As you know, our club depends on the volunteering done by so many in a wide variety of roles.
Within our Flag we are looking for two members who would like to take a role in helping to steer the club through the next couple of years.
First is our need to have a new military member step up as the incoming Vice Commodore. This position is integral as they normally transition after one year to become the next Commodore. If you might be interested in this role, please see either Joe Oram, our current Vice-Commodore or myself. - This position has now been filled.
Secondly, we need a new Treasurer. Rob Tucker has served us very well and is not being kicked out. Rather, with the sale of his boat Bravo 2, he and Brenda expect to spend more time each year sailing in distant places. Although he has proved that he can manage our finances from afar, he has indicated that he would like to find a replacement who he can help train before the 1st of November. Ideally this position should be filled by a serving military member but we will certainly like to talk with any club member who has interest in the role.
