Subject: HAPPY 2013 – resolve NOT to buy a boat this year and spend more time on the water – HOW you ask?
(Posted on Dec 31, 2012 at 11:57AM by Colin Jackson) Tags:
the truth about boats ~ from our experience ~ is you must love boating more than anything else (not altogether a bad thing) to the point you are using the boat all the time ~ that’s when ownership is really worthwhile
 
if you’re looking to get out on the water lots more and have big piles of fun in 2013 ~ your best year yet ~ then how do you do that without buying a boat?
 
JOIN ONE OF OUR THREE CLUBS

 we’ve come up with three innovative clubs specifically aimed at BOATLESS BOATERS – power & sail
 
CREW CLUB
they don’t get any simpler than this club ~ $39/month ~ we have a rolling 12 month calendar of FUN events why you pay a per trip fee ranging from $29 evening SOCIAL SAIL to $999 for a whole week in DESOLATION SOUND with the DREAMSPEAKER TEAM ~ authors of the DREAMSPEAKER CRUISING GUIDES


 
there are even bigger trips on the horizon for that once in a lifetime experience ~ but let’s just start by having some fun
 
we organized the destinations ~ we assemble the crews, we’ll pick boats from a great inventory that suit the group ~ YOU just plug in and go!
 
CRUISING CLUB
rather than casual charters, commit to a certain level and enjoy the best rates, best terms and ultimate in cruising convenience ~ if you are looking to spend a combined time of 20 days on the water, the CRUISING CLUB is the program for you


 
JIB SET
if you have seen the blazing red jibs out sailing, you have seen JIB SET and some of the smartest boatless boaters in BC ~ beyond the ability to sail as much as you would like on the sporty MARTIN 244 pocket cruisers, the JIB SET has an unmatched GROUP OF PEOPLE TO SAIL WITH ~ part of the savings stem from club members participating in operating the club and taking care of the boats ~ in 2013, the actual boat builder of the MARTIN 244 is on staff at GRANVILLE ISLAND ~ so learning about the boats just jumped up a level!
 
whether crew or captain, JIB SET is a great opportunity for short trips, including our popular FRIDAY NIGHT RACING ALL SUMMER

 
ALL OUR CLUBS offer many fun shore side opportunities to learn new topics like spinnaker and electronics, book readings from authors who are adventure experts and opportunities to just hang out with like minded boating folk ~ arguably the best sorts to hang out with on the planet ~ many of these shore side functions are free to members
 
STARTING IN 2013 ~ on the 13th of each month we send out our MEMBERS ONLY bulletin with unique opportunities reserved exclusively for MEMBERS, ranging from deeply discounted last minute offers to MEMBER ONLY EVENTS such as attending the popular FIREWORKS after dark
 
CAN’T DECIDE?
 know that we have many people that belong to more than one club and we make it easier to do that
 
with the rollout of the CREW membership, we are talking to a number of people interested in joining all three
 
    ~ WHAT DOES THAT LOOK LIKE? ~
one initiation fee of $499 and for $588 per month the member gets UNLIMITED SAILING on the MARTIN 244’s, $6,000 annually of charter time on anything in the entire fleet for your own group(s) and the opportunity to join the per trip programs of the CREW club with our groups
 
hey folks – we have people paying way more JUST TO MOOR THEIR OWN BOAT ~ and they go boating less with less variety
 
 
for some ~ PRIDE OF OWNERSHIP remains unmatched & despite our cries not to, they WILL BUY A BOAT ~ we can help ~ either with our FREE BOAT BUYING GUIDE ~ aimed at making you an educated buyer ~ to the opportunity to JOIN BC’s FINEST FLEET and ensure that when you are not using your boat, it derives revenue from our CHARTER, COURSE and CLUB programs at any of our THREE WORLD CLASS LOCATIONS

almost 25 years ago, COOPER BOATING changed hands and one of the first tasks at hand was to set a schedule for the school courses ~ taking the lead on scheduling courses was a key ingredient that fuelled  growth for the last quarter century 


last night we did our second preview evening for the CREW membership and it is clear that setting a schedule for the events that are all about having FUN and less about SKILL DEVELOPMENT has a lot of appeal ~ within minutes of unveiling the necessary paperwork for the club, we had a pretty nice group of freshly minted members


WHAT IS THIS APPEAL? - no need to do all the organizing - we've got that covered - dates, where to go, lead boat, shoreside events/meals, briefings - just browse our list of events, enrol and have fun 


some events are MEMBER EXCLUSIVES - in 2013 we only offer fireworks cruises to MEMBERS - if you are looking to attend the fireworks on one of our boats, you'll need to be a MEMBER - it is a very special experience



we draw on a selection of the finest boats based in three great locations - but more than that, we have a collection of great people that want to explore the BEST COAST and play together on boats ~ because there's just nothing better than messing about on boats


the club is built on a foundation of great MEMBER rates and getting involved is EASY -  there is no need to organize groups - just come as an individual or couple and we'll build the crew lists and select appropriate boats 72 hours prior to start times ~ for multi day trips the captain will be in contact to organize meals afloat and start planning out some of those finer details of your adventure 


we'll start each of those longer trips with a briefing of what's in store - and unlike those gigantic cruise boats - that nobody lets you drive - you'll be part of the crew - part of the adventure - part of the magic


if you have ever asked the question, how could it be simpler to get out on the water and have fun? - well the new club is really just that easy 


for DECEMBER, we're making the deal even sweeter - a special offer for two free months - only $390 for the entire 2013 year (and we'll include the NEW YEAR'S event - even though it's technically half in 2012!)


CREW membership - JUST have FUN

Subject: YOLO adventure (You Only Live Once)

DATES are set for a once in a lifetime experience - join us on a cruise to and from ALASKA in 2013

join the cruise with via our CREW MEMBERSHIP - and attend an information night on NOVEMBER 18 for the complete overview of our FUN and YOLO events for 2013
