We came across an article in Wooden Boat Magazine and it reminded us of the amazing work that the Cowichan Bay Maritime Centre does with students at Maple Bay Elementary. We couldn’t be more proud, since we support this event every year with a donation of plywood.
We were approached by our customer Jim York from Murphy Wall Beds to contribute to this worthy cause. He and his son our members of the 3rd Douglas group of Scouts in which West Wind has been a supporter for many years supplying marine plywood and lumber for their yearly boat building projects.
This special trip will take the 12 young Scouts from various local troops to Blair Atholl, in the Scottish Highlands, for the 35th Scottish International Patrol Jamborette. Many amazing and fun activities are planned and its sure to be a once-in-a-lifetime experience!
