Boating Courses 2021
Subject: Self-Study On-line Radio course sponsored by Pender Island Squadron
Pender Island Squadron is hosting an on-line, self-study Maritime Radio Course starting April 12th. With the Covid situation preventing in person training, we have taken advantage of the on-line training assets of the CPS organization. The materials are all provided on-line and there is a depth of quality self learning material in addition to the on-line manual. It seems to work well.
Your local squadron provides three on-line sessions with our qualified instructor over the course of the program. This is an opportunity to get a bit of rounding out of the critical details and for attendees to ask questions. The exam is given on-line individually to each student. Registration is limited to six, so that students get good instructor coverage.
If your organizations have interested individuals, then the registration is on-line at the cps-ecp.ca website (Canadian Power and Sail Squadrons). Go to “Courses and Seminars”, select “Maritime Radio Self Study”, then fill in your location as Pender Island and it will direct you to our course registration page.
A huge thank you to our chief instructor, Blair Smith for instructing all of 2019 winters courses, including the Power and Sail Squadron course, and the workshop series at the Library.
Depending on Covid restrictions, Blair will be offering boating courses starting in the fall/winter.

January 10, 2021
Progress Report: August 2020, from the CRD regarding the proposed Anson Road dock:
Progress Report: April 11th, 2019 Mayne Island meeting CRD prepared visuals of plans for new Anson Road dock and for changes Miners Bay Dock. Ted Robbins announced that quotes will go out after completion of the archaeological and environmental studies.
To be viewed on desktop computer screens....
Note: As of November, 2020 these plans have had some slight modifications since April 2019.
Anson Road dock will have 720 linear feet of dock space compared to the current 180 linear feet at Horton Bay. The current Horton Bay dock will be dismantled and replaced by the Anson Road dock after AR is completed.
There will be parking for 15 vehicles plus a turn-around.
The current T-float (in dark brown) will be replaced by a concrete float (in green) in order to lessen the effects of ferry wake.
