POTWWe hardly need tell you about the pandemic but it’s worth noting that the marine industry is acting to mitigate the situation where it can. That makes this Photo of the Week an ultra timely. Let’s hope we can take these signs down soon.

This image from a Steveston outlet in BC captures it all.

Your POTW photo can range from this kind of thing to, hopefully, much happier shots. That reminds us, all the POTWs are available on canadianyachting.ca archives if you are looking to spend some time in our Happy Place.

In the meantime, please get your phones and cameras out to capture spring launch, boaters helping others or just plain having some good times aboard or around your boat. Send your shots to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. and put POTW in the subject.

Now wash your hands.

Excess 12 and 15By Kieran Flatt

Catamarans have many advantages for cruising: more space, more speed, no heeling and a more comfortable motion. However, many experienced sailors find them less rewarding and engaging to sail than a monohull. That isn’t an inherent problem with multihulls, though. Rather, it reflects the fact that most cruising cats built in the last ten years have been aimed primarily at the charter market, designed above all to be docile and easy for novices to handle.
