(Posted on Feb 3, 2017 at 08:30AM by Colin Jackson)
How about a morning with one of sailing in BC's most influential characters?

Our JIB SET club is hosting an open to all event from 9am to 12noon on February 11 at Granville Island.  

Check it out and rsvp HERE

There's definitely a racing flavour to this session, but lots of people (including you we hope) this summer will blow off the work week with Friday Night Fun Racing, so why not attend a session that prepares for that?  Don is sure to entertain - his quirky approach blends silly with simple straight forward talk.  

Join us!

Subject: 'Lady Van' back in Vancouver
(Posted on Jun 23, 2010 at 12:09PM )
We've been watching the transformation and the 1928 R Class Yacht "Lady Van" for a while now. 


She was re-christened this week at a well attended ceremony at the Royal Vancouver Yacht Club.  The restoration nearly complete now, the story will continue with the battle over a very old trophy this fall - the Alexandra Cup (1906) - and the drama between Vancouver, Seattle and Sidney is already entertaining to say the least.   The first 'brandishing of the swords' will occur at the RIPS regatta in August, where a number Cooper crew members will be helping out with race management (make sure to let us know if you want to help with this and get the best seat in the house for seeing the battle of these classic yachts)



We are close to many of the people involved in this boat and are delighted to see this magnificent boat back in the water and soon to sail again in English Bay.
