Diane Reid DismastedDiane Reid is the first Canadian woman to take part in the challenging Mini Transat race from France to the Caribbean across the Atlantic Ocean in a 6.5m (21') sailboat.  Stormy weather delayed the start for weeks. She had already stopped in Portugal to repair boat damage, with strict time limits. A week into the race Diane Reid's mast broke and she jury-rigged her mast and was sailing to the Canary Islands for more repairs.

Lighthouse DocumentaryLighthouses are perhaps the most iconic structure in Atlantic Canada and are featured on countless road signs, logos, and postcards. These amazing structures have illuminated Nova Scotia shorelines for hundreds of years guiding generations of sailors and fisherman safely home. They stand as a modern day reminder of our rich maritime history and for many coastal communities they now also provide opportunities for the future.

 Bayfield Inlet

Bayfield InletStory and photos by Jennifer Harker

It is a stunningly surreal morning.

Wispy threads of morning mist rise slowly skyward off the unwavering water revealing a glassy expanse under sparkling sunlit skies. The smooth,still surface creates a canvas reflecting the surrounding landscape, mirroring every twisted tree and carved rock in an unnerving, almost hallucinatory manner.

Welcome to another simply glorious day at Bayfield Inlet on Georgian Bay.

Four Winns H290OB

Four Winns H290OBBy Andy Adams

Exciting new model for 2018

The Four Winns H290OB combines two of the most popular new big boat trends to come up with a great new 30 footer. It's a luxurious and spacious deep-V day boat that can handle big water and big groups, and it's powered by outboards. In this case, two Mercury Verado 300s gives this boat 600 hp of silky smooth, ready to run power.

The H290 has been available for the past three seasons as a twin-engine stern drive powered boat, but the outboard version is brand-new and it's a home run for sure!
