Steak Dry Rub
1/4 cup smoked paprika
3 tablespoons cumin
1/4 cup chili powder
2 tablespoons Mexican oregano
1 teaspoon fresh ground pepper
Sea salt to taste
Olive oil brushed onto outside of steak
Mix all dry rub ingredients together in a large bowl. Place each steak directly into the dry rub mixture and make sure each side is well coated, rubbing the dry rub into the stead. Let the steaks sit for at least 30 minutes. Coat each side with a bit of olive oil before the steaks hit the grill. We used top sirloin but this dry rub is great on rib eyes and flank steak too!!
4 avocados, diced
3 roma tomatoes, diced
1/2 red onions, minced
2 tablespoons lemon juice
Sea salt and black pepper to taste
Mix all ingredients together and serve on top of your steaks!
Chopped Broccoli Salad
3 cups broccoli, finely chopped
1 ½ cups of carrots, diced
1 apple, diced
9 strips of bacon, cooked and diced
3 green onions, diced
3 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
1 tablespoon spicy brown mustard
1 tabelspoon fresh dill
Black pepper to taste

The Heart of It allAs an attractive destination for sailors and cruisers alike, Midland Harbour doesn’t really have to try hard to impress; the waters of Georgian Bay attract yachts of all sizes from all over the globe. With a history steeped in lumber and boat manufacturing, Midland Harbour today is an integral part of a thriving town, boasting the largest freshwater marina in the world amongst its offerings. The hometown of Sarah Burke, Glen Howard, Adam Dixon and David Onley to name a few, Midland is the heart of the North Simcoe area, the centre of the neighbouring Georgian Bay communities.
In the heart of the Huronia wilderness, the Jesuits established the first French outpost outside of the area we now know as Quebec. It was called Sainte-Marie Among the Hurons in 1639. Wendake, “the land apart”, was the ancestral homeland of the Huron nation. The Wendat were a matrilineal society of skilled traders and farmers. They introduced the ‘three sisters’ (corn, beans and squash) to the French and taught them how to grow these crops in mounds. Sadly, the mission was to last only 10 years. With the Huron decimated by disease and rising tension of more frequent Iroquois attacks, the Jesuits burned the mission to the ground and moved all inhabitants to nearby Christian Island.
Great performance in a versatile, modern design
For the Canadian Yachting readers who are not yet familiar with Beneteau’s broad range of power boat models, the Gran Turismo 35 may come as a bit of a surprise. Our test boat is a head-on competitor to the North American built express cruisers and the latest day boats that are coming on the market.
The GT35 has the style and amenities to match the best new designs in it’s size range, the stern drive power to deliver exhilarating high speed performance plus, it still adds in an overtone of Euro style.
