POTWOur Photo of the Week is actually a Video of the Week that came our way from Rick Shaddock of Squamish Yacht Club. What a venue.

POTW Blind ChannelWe were all set with this week’s POTW when a real stunner came in as part of a story on the Blind Channel resort in BC. 

Bonaventure Island Bird SanctuaryStephen and Fran Hill are our most prolific POTW contributors. So far we have received at least three dozen beauties.

POTW WolfI took this photo in July 2017 from our boat Ginger which was anchored and stern tied in Mouat Bay near Shearwater. This wolf was very curious about our stern line and actually gave it a couple of hard tugs!

Dusk On The OceanPhoto of the Week is our opportunity to get creative with cameras, phones or even a GoPro!

POTW January 25Great icicles! This is not what one expects from the tropical climes of BC. It’s a nice winter Photo of the Week, though.

CYOB Destinations: We Visit the Hilton Beach Marina

Hilton BeachBy Amelia Morris

Ah Canadian simplicity at its finest; small town, big marina. Little Hilton Beach (population 200!), which I am lucky enough to call my cottage country, is located on the north-east coast of St. Joseph Island. The Hilton Beach Marina is one of the largest and most major ports of call in the Western North Channel. It also has a long and rich history dating back to the 1850’s.

I spoke with Marina Manager, Laura McRae and got the full scoop on what goes on in this inconspicuous but busy marina.

Scarab 255 Open

Scarab 255 OpenBy Andy Adams and John Armstrong

You can imagine,at the GroupeBeneteau dealer meeting in Michigan last fall where all the Four Winns, Scarab, Wellcraft, and Glastrondealers had come to see the latest new models, the docks were lined up with gleaming brand-new boats to show the dealers and media – and they certainly put on a show! But for me, the Scarab 255 Open was an immediate stand out. This is a boat that breaks new ground and brings fresh thinking and interpretation of the boating experience to a wide range of buyers.

We had a quick look around but the test drives would have to wait until the next day.
