I cannot help myself, I admit it. Just as cat videos have overtaken the Internet dogs on board are taking over Photo of the Week!!!

Nikki Bill

Ruth Still sent us an impossible to resist photo of her Golden Retriever 'Nikki' with her husband Bill on their boat, anchored at the Bay of Quinte Yacht Club.

“The boat was a 40' Hunter Legend. Nikki was around 2 years and loved joining us on a sail. Bill made a special ramp for her to board as she was pretty heavy to lift on-board. We have since sold the boat but have great memories of our times sailing together with her.”

Willy At Thetis Island











This is a photo of our mascot, Willy, our 14 year old Bichon, taken at Thetis Island, BC.

Cute or what?!!! Lise and Mike Starkey are from Nanaimo, BC and own a Catalina 30 sailboat.

OMG what great great shots. But I promise, next time we’ll switch gears. But really it’s up to you to pic the subjects. The photos can be of anything, preferably nautical and they must be taken from or near a boat. 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!!

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.
