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.

My Happy Place – Lake Simcoe and the Trent-Severn Waterway

My Happy Place – Lake Simcoe and the Trent-Severn WaterwayBy Paul and Sheryl Shard

It’s funny how a body of water can shape you. Shape your mood. Shape your friendships. Shape your future.

Since you’re reading Canadian Yachting, then I’m pretty sure you have a sense of what I’m talking about here - a favourite lake, bay, pond, river or ocean that, when you’re near it, in it or on it, it makes your heart sing and good things happen.

For me, this is Lake Simcoe and the Trent-Severn Waterway in Ontario. Although my husband, Paul, and I have sailed over 100,000 nautical miles in the four sailboats we’ve owned and have been blessed to visit..

Ranger Tugs R-23

Ranger Tugs R-23By: Andy Adams

At the boat shows, the Ranger Tugs’ classic tugboat lines always grab the crowds, with the wives and children most likely to want to stop and have a better look. Well, they should, because the Ranger Tugs R-23 deserves a second look…a long look in fact.

Yes, it’s really a “personality” boat that looks great out on the water, and it will turn heads and start conversations at the gas docks, the locks, or just about anywhere boaters congregate, but the Ranger Tugs R-23 is far more than just cute.
