Poets Cove Cruise 2018

Postby Sam Bisset on Fri Jan 26, 2018 5:15 pm

Join us for the fifth annual factory cruise to Poets Cove Resort and Spa for the weekend of May 31st - June 3rd, 2018. Poets Cove is located in Bedwell Harbour on South Pender Island in the Canadian Gulf Islands. Poets Cove Marina has been rated one of the top ten anchorages in the Western Hemisphere, according to Motor Boating and Sailing magazine! They have a beautiful website with lots of useful information on their amenities: http://www.poetscove.com This trip is the perfect way to start the cruising season.

You do not need to make moorage reservations with Poets Cove, we have reserved every open slip in the marina. We will send our registration list to the marina before the event so they can prepare a dock plan. The marina staff will do what they can to accommodate special docking requests but cannot guarantee anything due to the size of our group.

This cruise does require clearing Canadian Customs in Bedwell Harbour and is a pre-requisite to our Desolation Sound Cruise. (Participation in prior cruises also counts toward the pre-requisite) You will be responsible for paying for your own moorage and power but there are no additional fees for Ranger Tug and Cutwater owners.

Registration for all of our events will be done online through Eventbrite this year. The link to sign up for the Poets Cove Cruise is:2018 Poets Cove Registration

Space is limited for this cruise!

We will post more details as we get closer to the event but the tentative plan is for Andrew to lead a flotilla out of Anacortes at 9:00am on Thursday, May 31st. If you plan on following Andrew and the factory boats up, please indicate that when prompted during registration.

Looking forward to cruising with everyone! Let's hope for another year of great weather!

Sam, is the cruise already booked up? I missed the signup link in the post when I saw it a few weeks ago. Just went to the signup site and it added me to a waitlist. :(

Hi Steve,

We have good news! Due to the overwhelming demand for the 2018 Poets Cove cruise we have added a second location, Maple Bay Marina. With the addition of Maple Bay Marina, we are able to accommodate everyone who has signed up for the waitlist.

Keep an eye on your email inbox. Everyone on the waitlist will see an email from me very soon (probably today) with information on this and how to sign up.

Thanks and see you soon!

Are you still accepting wait listings for this cruise?

Thanks

Hi,

We're still accepting people on the waitlist but at the moment, both marinas are fully booked. There are about 8 boats on the waitlist right now.

We usually get some cancellations in the weeks leading up to the trip.

thank you.

I actually got two cancelations for Maple Bay yesterday. Are you on the waitlist now? I will be offering those spots to the top two boats on the list. Please email me at sambisset@rangertugs.com if you have any questions.

thanks.
