Pooches Onboard

Last time we published a picture of a cute doggie in a life jacket (my pup btw) and we received a couple of great boating canine pics in return.

Boat and Trip Already an enthusiastic photo contributor (thanks!) Mike Johnson of the Oakville Power and Sail Squadron sent along a great shot of Lacy, his son Marcus’ boat-friendly Nova Scotia duck toller at Wilson NY, cheeseburger in paradise party aboard the family’s Silverton 38X.










Brody PoochAnd Dean Gresko of the Thunder Bay Yacht Club sent in this, “ Here’s a photo of our Golden Retriever, Brody, on board our Beneteau Swift Trawler 50 at Thompson Island on Lake Superior near Thunder Bay last summer. He loves the swimming and watching the ducks quack at him. Lol”

Here are the PotW rules – the photos must be taken from or near a boat. They don’t have to be pet shots, but a dog on the boat is always a winner! They must be your shots and free from copyright. Most importantly, they must be wonderful. Send the to us via This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. and put Photo in the subject line.

We’ll publish yours in the next issue!!

Cedar Island Yacht ClubBy Katherine Stone
The very first yacht club ever featured in this column was the Buffalo Yacht Club, back in 2012. I chose to start with this particular club as it was the only one that had clubhouses in two countries: the United States and Canada.Canada is deeply tied to the United States as their number one trading partner, enjoys many cultural similarities, and a shared language; so this seemed like a fun way to start what has now become an ensconced column in every issue. However, the Buffalo Yacht Club is not the southernmost yacht club in Canada, as that distinction lies with the Cedar Island Yacht Club...

Fast, spacious and stable – the Leopard 45 is the stuff dreams are made of!

During those cold, cold, sunless, dreary months of January and February, I want to remember the fun I had in the sun on the water. Did someone say charter? In warm weather?In warm waters?

If you plan on chartering when the weather in Canada is less than ideal (mmmmm…that’s two months of bad sledding), then I suggest you charter, purchase to charter, or just buy to own and enjoy for yourself the newly redesigned Leopard 45 sailing catamaran.
