PCYC AerialIt started simply enough with an email from Thomas Fogh, Program Manager of Learn to Sail at Port Credit Yacht Club. Would I do a webinar/ZOOM on the racing rules for the Junior Race Team and the general membership? That email turned into several more, and I found myself signed up to host three webinars, along with many other volunteers, both members of the club and outside experts on a variety of interesting topics.

The series started last night (which runs twice a week until the end of June) with an inspirational talk from Dave and Kady Collier about the PCYC cruises in 2019 and 2020 and ended with guest speaker Steven Parry from Poseidon Charters about Exotic Destinations. Through a series of incredibly beautiful pictures he led us on a virtual flotilla of the Greek Islands, French Polynesia and Croatia. The wonderful “lecture” lasted only an hour and had 58 attendees who were so enthusiastic that the questions posed to Steven almost outnumbered the attendees!

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.
