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.

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.

Cruisers Yachts Cantius 50By: John Armstrong and Andy Adams
Photos: Cruisers Yachts Inc.

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.
