MooredAfter the questionable spring we’ve all had, here’s an iPhone shot that will remind you what summer is supposed to look like from Dean and Dawn Powers of Dundas, Ontario.

ReflectionHere’s a pair of shots guaranteed to get you in the mood for this summer. They come from Pat and Jan O’Malley in Nova Scotia and certainly celebrate the boating life.

Adjusting the WindexThis shot came to us via Cat Ward of Toronto, although it was her friend Laurie who took it from the masthead of the Beneteau. Says Laurie: I’m always ready to go up the mast. I was a gymnast when I was a kid and it doesn’t bother me a bit.

Gibsons Sunday Race“This is in Shoal Channel off the town of Gibsons BC. We are awaiting the start of a second race. The boat pictured is a Martin I am in a Catalina. Picture is through the channel looking west and out...
