Hans M. Fogh was born March 8, 1938 and on March 14, 2014, Canada lost a great sailor, while the world of competitive sailing lost a great friend.

Many people know that Hans Fogh was an Olympic medal winning sailor but he was far more than just that. We at Canadian Yachting have been deeply touched by his life as our leader, John Kerr, was Fogh’s long-time sailing partner and close friend. We are anxious to share with our readers, a review of the many and very significant accomplishments Fogh achieved during his lifetime. It is an impressive legacy indeed and one that may well have touched you, even if you didn’t know Hans Fogh personally.

You probably do know he was an Olympic Medal winning sailor for Canada, but you might not have known that Hans Fogh had also been an Olympic Medal winner for Denmark, his homeland.

KillarneyStory and Photos by: Jennifer Harker

We’re aboard Attigouatan, a Pursuit 2260 that normally lives life as a friend’s cottage boat, running back and forth from dock to dock. This will be her longest run in four years, travelling the approximately 120 kilometres (80 miles) northwest from Parry Sound to Killarney, threading our way through the northern reaches of the stunning 30,000 Islands of Georgian Bay’s eastern shoreline.

Her name evokes an early indigenous name for Lake Huron – Spirit Lake.

Jeanneau Sun Odyssey 440

Jeanneau Sun Odyssey 440By Zuzana Prochazka

There are few things more satisfying than watching someone thumb their nose at tradition and introduce something revolutionary that kicks convention to the curb. French designer, Philippe Briand, has done just that for Jenneau’s new line of Sun Odyssey family cruisers. By starting with a clean sheet, Briand re-thought how we move about on deck and below, and the results on the Jeanneau 440 are game changing.

Jeanneau unveiled the first hull of their 440 in Annapolis with dramatic flair. On command, the plastic that sheathed half the boat...
