chester fleetThe Chester IOD Fleet and the Chester Yacht Club will host the 2014 International One Design North American Championship August 29-31 in Chester, Nova Scotia. Chester, historically one of the best places in the world for sailing, and the International One Design (IOD), historically one of the best boats interna-tionally to race, create a perfect combination for a weekend of great sailing and hospitality.

Eight teams of world-class sailors from San Francisco, Bermuda, New York, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Nova Scotia and Maine will sail the Chester IOD Fleet yachts in challenging races. Social activities will take place in the Vil-lage of Chester and at the Chester Yacht Club. The Chester IOD Fleet is looking for sponsors who wish to support this North American Championship and benefit from the marketing opportunities presented.

The International One-Design Class was conceived to build, maintain and race a fleet of "One-Design Yachts, distinctive in appearance and performance, using one-design racing, and especially to develop the competitive capacities of both helmsmen and crews under the fairest and most equal conditions."
 
In late 1936, twenty five International One-Designs yachts were delivered from Norway and commenced racing on Long Island Sound. Since that time, other fleets have formed in Norway, the UK, Bermuda, Canada and the United States. With 12 fleets in 5 countries and over 150 yachts actively racing, the International One Design was the first class to be recognized by International Sailing Federation ISAF as a "Classic" One Design Class.
 
The Chester IOD fleet is the most recent fleet internationally sloops. Starting in 2005, the IODs were an excellent addition to classic fleets already sailing and racing in Mahone Bay. World Class Association recog-nition as an official fleet was granted in 2009, and by 2013 there were eleven boats sailing in the latest International One-Design fleet.

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.
