Circe in OslfjordThis week’s POTW comes from across the pond. Who knew we had a European audience:

 

Dear Madam, dear Sirs,

with great pleasure do I read your Canadian Yachting News.

And I noted that you would like the share some photos of boats.

Attached you will find some of which I made:

KELPE in SANDE FJORDNo 1 does show my boat CIRCE, an A&R Hansa-Jolle in the Oslo Fjord close to Dröback.

The next one shows the British Yacht KELPIE aproaching Sandfjord, Norway in very light conditions at the late afternoon.

The next one does show my racing my CIRCE in Kiel. This picture was made by a friend who was participating on an other yacht.

Hope you like those pictures,
kind regards,
Guenter O. Ahlers

An Abacos Adventure

Great Guana CayBy Mark Stevens; Photos by Sharon Matthew-Stevens

It’s a perfect Sunday morning jaunt.

We’re gliding through green-blue waters, colours so vivid and bright they hurt your eyes. We’re set for a close reach out of a harbour guarded by a necklace of tiny emerald islands decorated by palms that dance in fifteen knots of wind.

Our boat, “Tropical Escape II” (perfect name for both the boat and our adventure), is a 44-foot Robertson and Caine catamaran, chartered from Sunsail’s Marsh Harbour base on Bahamas’ Great Abaco Island.

Jeanneau NC 795 – designed in France and perfect for Canada

Jeanneau NC 795By Glen Cairns

After a period of record breaking hot and humid weather we had a dose of more traditional east coast conditions for our test run aboard the Jeanneau NC 795, with steady drizzle and a 15 – 20 knot south east breeze kicking up a short chop on Halifax’s Bedford Basin.
