Book award at Camosun

We were very pleased to make a book award to Ms. Robin Haynes at Camosun College earlier this week. Robin is a student in the 150 Ton Master program and aspired to work in the coastal tourism industry as a skipper of a natural history cruise vessel. The book awarded to Robin was “Golden Stripes” in which Captain V.S. Parani combines the credibility of his seafaring experience with his talent as a master storyteller to reveal the leadership challenges at sea and his strategies for staying on course.
