2017 Sperry Challenge The 5th edition of the Sperry Challenge presented by BNI was held at the RStLYC in Montréal on Aug 26 which raised $25,000 in support of local sailors with disabilities (www.aqva.org), bringing the 5 year total to over $100,000! The event consisted of a regatta (22 entries), a cruise open to the public (26 people donated $100 in return for an afternoon on Lake St-Louis, courtesy of cruise skippers), a cocktail, dinner, silent auction and dance party. Sincere thank you to Helly Hansen, Sail Canada and Canadian Yachting Magazine for auction items and, most importantly, to our new title sponsor, BNI Canada, whose director is none other than Olympic and pro sailor Kai Bjorn. Save the date for next year’s BNI Challenge on August 25, 2018!

The Middens of Galiano Island

By Catherine Dook

We motored our way into Montague Harbour along a twisted channel with our engine muffled by the leaning trees.

“This is peaceful,” I told my husband, John.

“Look,” I pointed to an eagle sitting on the top of a tree overlooking the channel entrance like a sentinel giving permission for us to pass. Dignified, unruffled, his impassioned gaze noted and then dismissed us, as uninteresting and perhaps unworthy. I was tired. We’d pulled up anchor at Portland Island that morning, and the grind of the diesel engine had worn me down.

Almost a decade ago, Cruisers Yachts Inc., launched an entire line of express cruisers called “Cantius” (named after company owner KC Stock’s grandfather) that began with the 48Cantius then came the 54, the 60 and now the Cantius 50. In the fall of 2017, we will be at the debut of the 42 Cantius at the Fort Lauderdale International boat show.

These designs have a strong family resemblance withhandsome and distinctive linesand with a design philosophy that you could say, pioneered the new version of the express cruiser.
