Kaila At DockLast issue we pondered who is buying sailboats – powerboats are selling briskly at the boat shows, but sail isn’t soaring at those same shows.

Mike RantaI think that Mike Ranta's epic journey across Canada by canoe this year was as good as it gets, and I think you should take the torch and feature his journey in CY. Following the voyageur routes connected by portages, he was raising awareness and appreciation for Canadian veterans.
