Splashdown It Never Gets OldIn honour of Launch Day, our POTW this time comes from Wendy Loat in Port Credit. This shot, taken last week, celebrates the more that five decades of the hitting the water in the spring ritual for her 60s plywood Thunderbird, Looney Tunes.

POTWOn the Easter Weekend, the Sidney North Saanich Yacht Club from Vancouver Island, had its first cruise of the season to Port Browning Marina on North Pender Island. I snapped this photo on Easter Monday as I was heading up the dock to help set up for the final breakfast. 

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.

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.

Shrink Wrap2020 is a year of change – self-isolation, social distancing, quarantine, and working remotely have become the norm. For many, this has been a bitter pill to swallow. Another bitter pill for boaters is the delay of the season. Provincial laws differ – so terms like ‘essential’ aren’t translating widely across the marine world.

In BC, marinas remain open and fuel is available, sometimes with conditions. In Ontario, marinas, boat launches, yacht clubs and the professionals that service the marine industry aren’t considered essential, unless the service and location allows a person to access their permanent residence only accessible by boat.

CY Virtual Video Boat Tours

Virtual Boat ToursWe all love boats and nothing can break us up! So, what better way to spend our time than looking at interesting boats and going aboard in a virtual ride or tour. We have asked our friends at various dealers and manufacturers to help us assemble a one-stop online resource to experience some of the most interesting boats on the market today. Where the CY Team has done a review, we connect you to that expert viewpoint. Our Virtual Show will continue to grow so visit frequently and check it out. If you can’t go boating, you can almost experience the thrill via your screen. Not quite the same, but we hope you enjoy our fine tour collection.

KingstonBy Amy Hogue

Cruise into the city of Kingston, Ontario, and it will quickly become clear that this city and surrounding waterways have something special. Built around the northern shore of Lake Ontario, Kingston is the place to go if you love to explore new waterways, fantastic views, and exceptional boating opportunities.

Sitting at the intersection of three world-class Canadian bodies of water, Lake Ontario, the St. Lawrence River, and the UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Rideau Canal (Cataraqui River from Kingston to Newboro), the water’s influence is deeply woven into Kingston’s culture and history.
