Sixty-seven Tollycraft yachts 24 to 61’ in length and from home ports from Powell River to Redondo Beach, California gathered at Telegraph Harbour Marina September 13-16 for the 24th annual Canadian Tollycruiser Rendezvous. This year’s theme was the “Tolly Circus” and crew costumes reflected this, as did the pet parade. As always, food was front and centre with a corn and rib night, burger and beer lunch on shore, potluck appies, a Saturday cook-off and the usual Saturday night barbecue. Sunday morning it was the famous beer batter Tollycraft pancakes on the dock, along with some cool mimosas. Steve Monrad from Anacortes accompanied by Mike McCormick from Seattle entertained on Tolly Mon on Thursday and Friday nights, to the delight of the Tolly owners. And the weather was the best ever: warm, sunny, fabulous!

Neptunus 650F Review
By Andy Adams
Over the years Canadian Yachting has had the pleasure of doing several boat review articles on new Neptunus models and we are familiar with the qualities that Neptunus is famous for. They have all been exceptional yachts, but this is the one I would most want to own myself. It’s a personal choice and a matter of taste as to whether you would prefer to have a sedan express model or a flybridge but in my opinion, the flybridge layout offers some wonderful attributes.
We met with Neptunus Managing Director Jan Willem De Jong this past fall to take the new Neptunus 650F out in Lake Ontario.
The Other Virgin Islands
By Mark Stevens
I was first seduced by the United States Virgin Islands during a ferry ride from St. Thomas to Tortola to begin one of our earliest British Virgin Islands charters nearly twenty years ago.
A perfect sunset off St. John with St. Thomas views for backdrop.
Clearing Pillsbury Sound, surrounded by voluptuous emerald mountains as the ferry sliced through royal blue waters, I was struck by the unspoiled ambiance of St. John, the island gliding past our starboard beam and the irresistible charm of a village called Cruz Bay visible from our quarter stern.
