POTW MonteThis issue’s Photo of the Week comes from Derek Noon somewhere in BC who writes:

Our little treasure: Montague (Monte) taken at Pirate's Cove in the Gulf Islands. Monte is a four-month-old English Labrador and a very keen boater.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

In fact, we have two Photos of the Week!

POTW StormAnibal Pinguelo, a prolific on-the-water photographer who shoots non-stop while aboard, even during races, took this shot. The weather in August was very dramatic, as you can see from the sky in this quick shot!

BTW, CYOB needs your photos for the off-season. So please shoot and send them in before the season ends. As you can see from the examples above, they take all shapes and subjects!



The Photo of the Week can be anything – pets (like Montague), lunch, costumes, racing, cruising, craziness, harbours, water skiing, fishing, signs - you chose from photographs on or near your boat.

Send your photos, with a brief back-story, to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.  and put POTW in the subject line.

And here as an extra bonus for your POTW pleasure - a sweet video from Canada’s National Sailing Team - https://videopress.com/v/HugYTplC

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.

Hanse 388

Hanse 388By Katherine Stone

The Hanse group produced their second most popular boat of all time with the Hanse 385. The trick was to build on that winning formula when they upgraded to the Hanse 388, which they have done in spades. The German build quality is first rate and true to the Hanse tradition. Leaving the hull the same with a steep stern and straight stem for an optimal long water line, they went with a slightly stiffer, heavier displacement, new deck, interior layout and window line. Hanse’s highly experienced yacht construction team, judel/vrolijk & co., have combined ease of sailing, comfort and performance into the newly designed Hanse 388.
