George CuthbertsonWe will be celebrating the life of George Cuthbertson at the Shellbacks Luncheon at RCYC City Clubhouse on November 29th. It was George's wish that there not be a formal Celebration of his Life, but the family has agreed that we can pay tribute to George and his accomplishments at Shellbacks on the 29th.

Shellbacks is a weekly luncheon gathering with a speaker, that takes place every Wednesday at noon at the RCYC City Clubhouse at 141 St. George Street, Toronto. My presentation on the 29th was to focus on the CCA and IOR designs on display in the model room at RCYC, so turning that into a tribute to Big George is more than appropriate. The response to this event has been very strong and it is currently oversubscribed. There will be a report on the event in the next issue of CYOB
I'm sure you saw the tributes to George in CYOB

CY Virtual Video Boat Tours

Virtual Boat ToursWe all love boats and nothing can break us up! So, what better way to spend our time than looking at interesting boats and going aboard in a virtual ride or tour. We have asked our friends at various dealers and manufacturers to help us assemble a one-stop online resource to experience some of the most interesting boats on the market today. Where the CY Team has done a review, we connect you to that expert viewpoint. If you can’t go boating, you can almost experience the thrill via your screen. Not quite the same, but we hope you enjoy our fine tour collection.

AXOPAR 37 XC

 

Axopar 37 XCWhole new ball game…

 

Set aside your assumptions and expectations for a few minutes while we try to describe the new Axopar 37 XC that made its American debut at the 2020 Miami International Boat Show. This boat represents a whole new ball game in terms of design, performance, seakeeping and functionality. In fact, I’d say it takes a ‘clean sheet of paper’ approach to boating – it’s that different.

DolphinsBy the Canadian Yachting Editors


Canadians are blessed in many ways and especially when it comes to boating. We enjoy some the world’s most beautiful cruising waters and many places are as sheltered as they are scenic.

British Columbia and the Pacific North West plainly have the most breath-taking scenery with the combination of the majestic ocean views and the snow-capped mountains in the distance. It’s like no place on earth when you have a Killer Whale breach beside your little fishing boat.
