New Glasgow Marina

New Glasgow Boatride

Apr 26, 2018

The New Glasgow marina is located about six miles up the East River of Pictou in the heart of the town of New Glasgow. Navigation is restricted to powerboats by the Trenton Connector bridge.

The revitalization of the New Glasgow Riverfront has added a recreational and leisure dimension for all ages and interests. The riverfront is home to a full-service marina, the Samson Trail, a 4km trail along the East River and the Pioneer Trail (2km) which connects the trail system to the east side of the town. Victorian style lampposts line the riverside and light the Town’s landmark George Street Bridge and the Samson Trail.

The revitalization along with the addition of Glasgow Square Theatre has brought new life to the downtown core and has become a focus for community celebration and festivities. It is also a major source of community pride and was realized through the dedication, imagination and vision of many residents, groups and businesses working together to make the dream a reality.

Neptunus 650F Review

Neptunus 650F 400

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

Sunset off St John

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.
