The Canadian Power and Sail Squadron (CPS), Canada’s Boating Club, as it is known, recently elected local safe boating advocate Jack Adams as one of six new directors to its board for a three-year term at its annual general meeting in Ottawa. The non-profit organization, celebrating its 80th year, counts more than 16,000 members throughout the country. They are all volunteers who promote safe boating through high quality training, fellowship and alliances with like-minded organizations.
Adams comes from many years of association with the Sunshine Coast Power and Sail Squadron, serving as its training officer and later as commander. During this time he helped forge a strong alliance with the Gibsons Yacht Club, which has mutually benefited members of both those organizations. He looks forward to contributing towards continued safe boating on the Sunshine Coast through his new responsibilities.
