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.

Cobourg Yacht Club - 2015 Sailing instructorsKatherine Stone

Like many other harbours on Lake Ontario, Cobourg has seen its fair share of changes. Screams used to be heard from kids piled into a toboggan on wheels that went hurtling down a wooden slide into the harbour. Above it all was the bustling din from the waterfront of ship’s whistles, train engines, foghorns and thundering coal cars. It is now a rather serene place for the locals and visitors to enjoy various watercraft. Fortunately, the beautiful beach that lines the waterfront is still a star attraction for the town.

Located 95 kilometres east of Toronto and 62 kilometres east of Oshawa on the north edge of Lake Ontario, United Empire Loyalists first starting arriving in the area as early as the 1780s. The first settlement in 1798 was called Buckville, later renamed Amherst, then called Hamilton (after the township) and also nicknamed Hardscrabble. It wasn’t until 1819 that they finally settled on the name of Cobourg, which was incorporated as a town in 1837. In the late 1820s large schooners with passengers and cargo had to anchor well off shore, as there was only a landing wharf. A group of Toronto businessmen formed the Cobourg Harbour Company which built the wooden Eastern Pier from tolls charged for the use of the harbour.

Beneteau Oceanis 30.1As boat builders clamber to create ever-bigger platforms for ever-more generous budgets, the entry-level cruiser has become an elusive animal. Sure, if you want to daysail, there are plenty of small open boats from which to choose, but if you want a freshly built pocket cruiser, you’re in for a long search. Enter French builder Groupe Beneteau, which identified this gap in the market and set about creating the Oceanis 30.1, an adorable little cruiser that resembles her larger siblings in all but length and price. With all she offers, it wouldn’t be a stretch to call her a mini yacht.

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.
