Awesome Pasta SaladAWESOME PASTA SALAD

I don’t know about you but I know that when I am preparing for a few days or even an afternoon of cruising the last place I want to be is in the kitchen with a complicated, lengthy recipe.  So in the spirit of getting out into the sunshine and onto the water faster, here’s a terrific pasta salad recipe that is easy, is full of flavour and will feed a bunch of hungry boaters. 

    Ingredients
    1 (16 ounce) package fusilli (spiral) pasta
    3 cups cherry tomatoes, halved
    1/2 pound provolone cheese, cubed
    1/2 pound salami, cubed
    1/4 pound sliced pepperoni, cut in half

    Instructions
    1 large green bell pepper, cut into 1 inch pieces
    1 (10 ounce) can black olives, drained
    1 (4 ounce) jar pimentos, drained
    1 (8 ounce) bottle Italian salad dressing

    Prep - 30 m
    Cook - 10 m
    Ready In - 40 m

    Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add pasta, and cook for 8 to 10 minutes or until al dente. Drain, and rinse with cold water.
    In a large bowl, combine pasta with tomatoes, cheese, salami, pepperoni, green pepper, olives, and pimentos. Pour in salad dressing, and toss to coat.

This pasta salad goes perfectly with an ice cold craft beer like this one from the Muskoka Brewery. The Detour acquired its name when the Brewmaster took a left turn from a normal IPA and dry-hopped it to create a truly sessionable brew with a rewarding aroma, big hop flavours and clean finish.

The Middens of Galiano Island

By Catherine Dook

We motored our way into Montague Harbour along a twisted channel with our engine muffled by the leaning trees.

“This is peaceful,” I told my husband, John.

“Look,” I pointed to an eagle sitting on the top of a tree overlooking the channel entrance like a sentinel giving permission for us to pass. Dignified, unruffled, his impassioned gaze noted and then dismissed us, as uninteresting and perhaps unworthy. I was tired. We’d pulled up anchor at Portland Island that morning, and the grind of the diesel engine had worn me down.

Almost a decade ago, Cruisers Yachts Inc., launched an entire line of express cruisers called “Cantius” (named after company owner KC Stock’s grandfather) that began with the 48Cantius then came the 54, the 60 and now the Cantius 50. In the fall of 2017, we will be at the debut of the 42 Cantius at the Fort Lauderdale International boat show.

These designs have a strong family resemblance withhandsome and distinctive linesand with a design philosophy that you could say, pioneered the new version of the express cruiser.
