Subject: First of two Dufour 425's arrived this morning

The first of two Dufour 425's arrived very, very early this morning at Granville Island.   Arista is destined for the Vancouver  charter fleet and features some of the coolest items we've yet offered in the charter fleet.  In addition to a propellor that looks more like  of a work of art than a working piece of equipment, Arista is the first boat we've ever offered with a retractable bow thruster - that's right, a bow thruster that sucks itself back up into the hull to make an incredibly easy boat to dock with no sacrifice to sailing performance.

Being that Granville Island is not always the easiest place to dock, we're sure this feature will be a hit!  Book today to avoid disappointment.

Subject: Oh what a difference a year makes!

As 2009 drew to a close, a lot of folks here could not help but notice the dramatic difference between the end of 2008 and 2009.  A year ago, we wondered if the docks could continue to float under massive snow loads.

Some of us were housebound - others of us planned to move back to the prairies where less shovelling is required and snowblowers are readily available and cool to own.   


Remember the favourite saying for weather in BC - if you don't like the weather, wait an hour. In this case the general trend is great year over year  in that we all get to enjoy some very pleasant time on the water.  For amusement, take a look at shots of the same boat a year apart:




No wonder we're seeing more folks here... hope to see you soon!

It's ready - the 2010 sailing school course lineup is ready - both in print and online Contact our office and we'll be happy to mail you a copy to browse as you recover from holiday indulgences and plan lots of fun on the water in the happiest of new years. 

We have devoted the beginning of this year's publication to providing a new overview of various programs and how they all fit together.  For those you meet at this special time of year that have always wanted to start sailing, there is also a section about "Brand New to Sailing." It's great to introduce people to this activity and that's what this new part of the publication is all about.

For those who've started and want to continue with our course lineup, you will also find trusted favourites and some interesting new programs. The power boat courses are on-line and we'll follow up with that material next year in print for those so inclined.

The office is open daily except for the afternoon of the 24th and 31st along with the entire day on December 25, 26 and January 1.  As you plan for some great times on the water in 2010, we're here to get you there!
