Happy Canada Day from Cooper Boating!

We had a great time and even a few orcas came to celebrate.  Check out the photos and be sure to catch one of our three fall long weekend flotillas! (No Labour Today, Thanksgiving and Simple Pleasures in November)








Subject: WOW ~ quite the EASTER cruise!

What a SPECTACULAR EASTER event!  We had 11 boats - power, sail, monohull and multihull - all cruising the glorious Gulf Islands together.  The rain gods stayed away for almost the entire trip, with the exception of the bonfire.  We did get the bonfire warm enough to not worry about the rain.

past commodore peter

None of us could pronounce Past Commodore Peter's boat name, so it was renamed "Eenie Meenie" (tender is Miny Mo)


dinghy dock pub night

The crews of GRYPHON and STRAY CAT contemplate life at sea over dinner at the floating Dinghy Dock Pub (some came aboard tender "Stray Kitten")


that is a fire

While the EASTER BUNNY had some trouble had trouble getting the fire started in the rain (umbrellas come in handy).... the end result was fantastic!


treasure hunt

You can't find a better spot for an EASTER TREASURE HUNT -- a might treacherous however after the evening rains the night before


skipper the kayak coach

"Skipper the kayak coach" watches from the tender as the youngest crew members explore Silva Bay by kayak.



Be sure not to miss the next one:  May LOOONGER weekend flotilla.  Long weekends should be longer... ours is 5 days!  Boats already booked to leave VANCOUVER and SIDNEY locations.

SEEING AS THE GREAT WEATHER IS HERE - WHY NOT BOOK YOUR BOATING HOLIDAY NOW?

ps - odd as it sounds, we are still trying to find some mid 30 foot sail & power boats for the fleet - catch the wave

ps2 - MR COOPER will be BUSY shortly (like he isn't already - good thing we've also got the strongest team ever!)

Willkommen  "ACappella"  !!




After much  anticipation, our *NEW* 2011 Bavaria 45 has  arrived at our Vancouver
 docks! She's just visiting, however, as she'll be spending most of this summer
in the natural beauty of Desolation Sound


"ACappella"  sleeps 8 in 4 cabins and features a powered retractable aft swim platform for
those warm Desolation Sound waters (22-26 degrees Celsius in the summer)!




This lovely lady is booked up for much of the summer already, but still has some time in August
and September for a lucky charterer!
