NAs StartlineMartin 242- 2019 North American start line

The event will be part of the regular SIN Regatta hosted by the Nanaimo Yacht Club ("NYC") on the July 4/5 weekend after Canada Day and during the US Independence Day holiday long weekend.

The Fleets selected Nanaimo in recognition of it being the top overall choice of Survey respondents, both from an overall scoring perspective and also from those who ranked it as their 1st or 2nd choice relative to the other 3 venue options.

Nanaimo has also seen a modest resurgence in 242 ownership these past few years, and the NA's will help propel the growth of the Class on Vancouver Island, as well as providing most competitors with the opportunity to experience a new and exciting venue. This will be the first time ever that the NA's have been held in Nanaimo, and we expect to get over 30 boats based on the Survey responses

Plan ahead now! As Nanaimo is a major business and tourist destination on Vancouver Island, competitors are advised to research accommodation options well in advance of the event.

The regatta organizers will be looking into the possibility of competitors being able to stay on NYC member boats in their Marina to help defray costs, and Ken Holland has a 2/3rds-acre property a few miles from the Club where people can tent or park Campers and RV's. More information on accommodation options will be provided in subsequent update emails.

Limited moorage will also be provided at NYC for motherships, and there are several commercial marinas nearby and excellent anchoring also in the Inner Harbor.

The SIN website will also provide information about travelling to NYC, both via water delivery, and via ferries (Horsehoe Bay to Nanaimo, Tsawwassen to Duke Point, and Port Angeles to Victoria). Air transport is also readily available for competitors.

Lots of social events are planned, including the world-famous Optimist races on the Friday night as part of the Dock Party with music, as well as a dinner and band on Saturday night.

More information will be available soon.

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.
