LightshipNow is the right time to switch to solar-powered, internal lighting. The LightShip from Davis Instruments enables users to deliver portable, solar-powered LED lighting to boats, RVs, cabins or homes at a low cost. It also serves as a safety light in case of fire or other emergency when the electricity goes out, automatically illuminating a room during a power outage.

LightShip can be attached to any clear-glass window. In a home, it's great near any door, stairs, electric panel or in any bathroom or hallway. On a boat, LightShip can be attached to the inside of any hatch, window or porthole with good sun access for all-night lighting. It's also perfect to keep campers, trailers or cabins well lit with no energy draw.

The LightShip installs easily with three powerful suction cups that face the solar cell to the sun for charging the NiMH battery. Three bright-white LEDs provide enough light for reading or users can switch to one, single red LED for better night vision capabilities.

A built-in light sensor switches the LightShip off automatically during daylight hours. It can also be switched off to store up energy for future use. Owners can attach one to a well-lit area during the day, then move it to wherever it's needed at night.

Constructed from tough polycarbonate, the LightShip features a clear, molded lens and reflector to maximize LED intensity. For interior use only, it measures 2" H x 5" W and weighs only 8 oz.

Midland Harbour By Terri Hodgson

The Heart of It all

As an attractive destination for sailors and cruisers alike, Midland Harbour doesn’t really have to try hard to impress; the waters of Georgian Bay attract yachts of all sizes from all over the globe. With a history steeped in lumber and boat manufacturing, Midland Harbour today is an integral part of a thriving town, boasting the largest freshwater marina in the world amongst its offerings. The hometown of Sarah Burke, Glen Howard, Adam Dixon and David Onley to name a few, Midland is the heart of the North Simcoe area, the centre of the neighbouring Georgian Bay communities.

CY Evening Cruise

Terri Hodgson

On a gorgeous sunny May evening recently, the Canadian Yachting staff were treated to an evening sail aboard Lynn and Pat Lortie’s Adamant 1, complete with delicious snacks and Lynn’s custom audio soundtrack, which may have taken us back a few years.

After a long winter and a cool, wet spring here in Midland, ON, it was such a welcome change to be out on the Bay on a calm, warm evening. Prior to setting out from the Midland Bay Sailing Club we enjoyed a glass of wine and a selection of appetizers that were all prepared using the Carnivore Club’s Meat of the Month box.

Beneteau GT 35Andy Adams

Great performance in a versatile, modern design

For the Canadian Yachting readers who are not yet familiar with Beneteau’s broad range of power boat models, the Gran Turismo 35 may come as a bit of a surprise. Our test boat is a head-on competitor to the North American built express cruisers and the latest day boats that are coming on the market.

The GT35 has the style and amenities to match the best new designs in it’s size range, the stern drive power to deliver exhilarating high speed performance plus, it still adds in an overtone of Euro style.
