Once you’ve found the “boat for your budget”, exhibitors on hand will provide you with what you need to enjoy a safe and responsible experience on our incredible coastal waters. At the show you can take the Exam for the Pleasure Card Operators Certificate, now mandatory in Canada. Plus sign up for more in-depth courses to understand marine charts, plot courses, understand navigation and collision rules and how to communicate on the marine highway at various levels. Members of the BC Yacht Brokers Association are supporting the show for the 6th consecutive time. Yacht brokers and manufacturers plus a variety of exhibitors from the lower mainland and Vancouver Island are present to provide products and services for attendees from British Columbia, Alberta and Washington State. Nanaimo’s show is gaining a reputation for results with a reported 9 sales during the 2009 show including a 70 foot vessel. You can refer to a list of exhibitors, finalized at the deadline for printing, representing 98% of over 70 show participants. A successful show could not be accomplished without the special efforts and sponsorship from many local organizations and the marine community. In this regard, acknowledgement goes out to Pacific Yachting, Tourism Nanaimo, Downtown Nanaimo BIA, Aero Fishing, Hub City Fishing, Shylo Fishing, Macleod Bros., Budget Rent-a-Truck, and Maxx Music. We thank you for your support. The Show Program was designed by MG Designs with assistance from Nanaimo Daily News. The show Website creation and meticulous inner work were provided by Simple Vision. Our Program will be posted on line on our show web site for future reference along with contacts from the show. www. vancouverislandboatshow.com A unique feature of the Nanaimo show is our opportunity to celebrate our local talent, found in the world of culinary arts from our very own Vancouver Island University. A huge hit each year, chefs from the program work with students to create gourmet seafood samplings for show attendees each day around the noon hour. Culinary Arts Chair, Chef Craig Rogers says; “This show is one they look forward to every year where they can display their talents to the public, an important part of cuisine presentation.” We can’t wait to see what they have in their recipe book this year! This show program also features information from Nanaimo Port Authority including the recently announced
Cruise Facility, and newly launched web site www.npa.ca While you are enjoying the show drop by our Wharfinger’s Office to learn more about the many services at the marinas and around the harbour. You can pick up a copy of the Harbour Practices and Procedures for extended stay permits in the anchorage area of our beautiful Nanaimo Harbour. For business people we have an extensive brochure and sign program to connect the 22,000 visiting boaters to local businesses. Our popular Dining Guide refers people to the many incredible restaurants we have just minutes away. Rates for charter boats and annual moorage are available or make a reservation for a friend who wants overnight moorage in our marinas. If you or an organization you know is planning a special event, we have several scenic venues to offer including our Observation Deck, a water level private float or Pioneer Waterfront Plaza. Plan to come back with family and friends to wander through shops on our Harbourside Walkway (Pic) or visit the historic HBC Bastion and have blast when the famous cannon firing marks high noon. Take in the Fisherman’s Float and pick up dinner from an authentic commercial fishing vessel. Fly home right from our show’s front door with Harbour Air or West Coast Air or take our shuttle to BC Ferries’ Departure Bay Terminal.

Nanaimo’s New Cruise Facility Underway Last minute i di discussions i over First i Nation concerns have been settled and Nanaimo’s new $22 million floating cruise ship facility is on the way to becoming reality next year. Lead engineering consultants, CH2MHill put tenders out for the floating dock on April 21, followed this up with an on-site meeting with interested parties on May 4. The tenders closed on May 19th and the Port is now in the process of evaluating each one before making the final award. Port President & CEO Bernie Dumas indicated he is pleased with the competitive bid numbers received and hopes to announce the successful bidder in early June.

Nanaimo is seeking a 350 foot by 50 foot floating dock – either steel or concrete – which will allow it to handle the largest cruise ships on the west coast. That contract will also include mooring dolphins, gangways and trestles, and spin fin pilings which can support a higher stress load than conventional pilings. On shore, Herold Engineering Limited of Nanaimo is building road access; upgrading services such as water, sewage and electric; and constructing a welcome centre that will also incorporate a Canada Border Services Agency inspection facility and passenger waiting and services areas. It is envisioned that some small portable kiosks for local shore excursion operators will also be included in the passenger welcoming area. All construction will have to be completed by March 31, 2011 or face penalties, says Dumas. “This should be enough time if we don’t run into unknowns . . . there is plenty of local labour available for the project,” he adds. And the cruise trade should prove profitable for Nanaimo, but it will take perhaps five years or more to reach the goal of 30 to 40 large cruise ship visits in a season. This year, only three large cruise ships and six pocket cruise ships will call – mostly in the shoulder seasons – and the big cruise ships will tender passengers and crew ashore for a variety of excursions, walking tours, and other attractions. It’s a quiet year – one felt widely on the west coast as Alaskan cruise ship sailings have been significantly reduced – but Dumas emphasizes the new floating dock is being “built for the future and with the ability to handle the variety of cruise ships that will ply the west coast.” “We in Nanaimo have a lot to offer, we have a very good future,” he assures.

Official Boat Show Program 2010
World Oceans Day, June 8 World Oceans Day, June 8, is a time to remember the lifegiving role of oceans and to raise awareness about ocean health. The Government of Canada proposed the concept of World Ocean Day in 1992 at the United Nations Earth Summit in Rio de Janeiro and the day had been celebrated internationally ever since. We are all connected to the oceans no matter where we live — inland or on the coast. By exploring our links to the oceans, we learn how closely connected we are to the ocean, and how what we do in our backyard and community can have a positive or negative affect on our oceans.
For more information about Oceans Day, visit the DFO website at: http://www.dfo-mpo.gc.ca/ oceans/events-evenements/ oceansday-journeedesoceans/ index-eng.htm Also check out the Rivers to Oceans Week program and events to find out what’s happening in your region: http:// www.cwf-fcf.org/en/what-we-do/ issues/water/
Change attitudes — encourage individuals to think about what the oceans mean to each of us, and what oceans have to offer. Learn — discover the wealth of diverse and beautiful creatures and habitats found in the oceans, and how our actions affect them. Change our ways — encourage each of us to become caretakers of our oceans, and to conserve them for our future. Celebrate — organize or participate in ocean events, whether we live inland or on the coast.

Gallery 223 is in a renovated heritage building displaying the artwork of many local artists; upstairs several well-known painters work on-site in their studios. The Nanaimo Art Gallery, in the heart of the arts district, strives to enhance the cultural environment of the Nanaimo/Central Island region through exhibitions and outreach programming that encourages active public involvement with the visual arts. Continuing downtown, The Artisan’s Studio is a local cooperative where you’ll find quality arts and crafts, including pottery, woodwork, wall hangings, weaving, original prints, paintings and stained glass.

For museum location and hours of operation visit www.nanaimomuseum.ca. Nanaimo has an abundance of restaurants, cafes, bakeries, and pubs that stretch to all corners of the city. You must have a Nanaimo bar; however it doesn’t have to be the traditional bar. Try a Nanaimo Bar Martini at the Modern Café, indulge in a deep fried Nanaimo Bar at Pirate Chips, satisfy your sweet tooth at the Wee Cupcakery with either a Nanaimo Bar flavoured cup cake or an original mix named after the Hudson Bay Bastion. In the Old City Quarter you’ll find McLean’s, who stock Vancouver Island’s largest selection of cheeses in addition to an impressive array of hard to find specialty
foods from around the globe. Another neat corner of the city to explore is near China Steps where Coco Locos, a local favourite is situated, offering organic smoothies in biodegradable cups along with fresh, hearty wraps. You’ll also find the Thirsty Camel, a Middle Eastern kitchen with a fair trade espresso bar. Many locals agree they have the best falafel in town, and they make a great cup of Egyptian coffee to accompany. Nanaimo is central and convenient by boat, car or on foot and a must see when exploring Vancouver Island.

C.I.V.I. Announces First Cookbook C.I.V.I. Announces First Cookbook The award winning chefs at the Culinary Institute of Vancouver Island have done it. They have selected a collection of mouth watering culinary delights for every palate. The panel poured over the contributions from alumni, students, faculty and support staff and have created a masterpiece of temptation, aptly called, ‘The Culinary Institute of Vancouver Island Cookbook, Volume 1’. And that’s not all. This cookbook has an even greater purpose. It will be part of the legacy left to provide for future generations of alumni. The proceeds will be used to fund projects like the Molecular Gastronomy initiative and the wood fired brick oven. Have you tasted the bread pizzas and bagels? Incredible!! In addition, the cookbook will help to raise the funds needed to take
the CIVI program to new heights through funding of field trips, competition expenses, new tools and guest chefs. Take this opportunity to become a part of the future success of the Institute. The student you benefit today could be the one who brings home the glory of culinary excellence to Canada. Books are available through the Program Assistant, Josephine
Chong, for a paltry $20 per copy. You will be so pleased with this collection that you will want to buy one for all your friends. No household should be without one. You can place your order over the phone by calling Josephine at 250-740-6289 or via email at email@example.com Volume discounts are available for orders of 10 books or more.

One of the most popular trends we’ve noticed among visitors to our Marina is the growing number of boaters who return to our Port, year after year. They cite our central Vancouver Island location, the proximity to downtown, complete marine services with friendly, professional help from Port staff. When boaters were asked to name their favourite Port on the west coast, they answered “Nanaimo... Of Course”. Visit us soon and find out why this is B.C.’s favoured marine destination!
