POTWWelcome to Photo of the Week 2018. If you are not familiar with this wonderful feature (What???!!!) it’s an opportunity for you to share your fine camera work with the boating nation.

The rules are simple. It has to be your shot taken in and around boats or from a boat. Or anything else boat-y. Or anything you feel is appropriate - docks, ports, winches, engine parts, people – yes, people And pets on boats, of course. And kids.

Send your photos to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. with POTW in the subject and we’ll get them into the publication in 2018! Thanks in advance.


To kick off the new crop, here’s a New Years gem:

“Setting sail in early morning from Salt Spring Marina” I took this photo today, December 30 just prior to our departure back to Sidney, Vancouver Island from Salt Spring Marina on Salt Spring Island. The previous day was full of beating rain and so the skipper delayed our departure until today.

It was a beautiful motor/sail back with rainbows, showers and sunshine. All of which told us that the move west from frigid Alberta was a good one as we can now sail all year round.

Sincerely yours,
Kathy Younker

The Canary Islands are a mid-Atlantic archipelago lying only 70 nm off the African coast at it’s closest point. An autonomous community of Spain, the Canary Islands lie at the outermost point of the European Union recognized for their historical significance.

Jeanneau NC 33By John Armstrong and Andy Adams

Jeanneau’s newest NC model is the NC 33, and it’s an exciting and innovative inboard cruiser ideally suited to young families or couples.

Nick Harvey, President of Jeanneau America wanted to emphasize that their new NC 33 features a hull design by Michael Peters. Peters’ hand has been on many of the company’s recent designs and strong performance and excellent sea-keeping are to be expected.

At an overall length of 34.5” and equipped with twin engines, the NC 33 has been designed to fit in between Jeanneau’s NC 9(30’11” with a single engine) and the NC 11 at 36’6” and with twin engines.
