Bash Logo If you miss the good ol’ days of fun and frivolity in sailboat racing, if you’ve never raced your sailboat, if you’re a powerboater or even if you don’t have a boat but love to crew or party by the water, then you must set Saturday June 23rd on your calendar!

We are thrilled to announce that the Port Credit Yacht Club will be hosting the Toronto Area Hospice Regatta (TAHR) again in 2018. The TAHR is a charity sailing event with net proceeds going to support a local hospice. The beneficiary of the 2017 TAHR was the Ian Anderson House, located on the Mississauga/Oakville border. The $57,000 we the event to the IAH was the largest amount ever raised by a third party fundraiser in their 20 year history!

BASH Perseverance WinningThe TAHR will feature both a one-design sport boat circle alongside a fun, pursuit start “Hospice Handicap” point-to-point race on Saturday June 23rd. The Hospice Handicap will have something for everyone from the avid racing enthusiast to the family cruiser, rookies to pros inclusive. We’re even calling on all power boats to both play a role in this unconventional sailboat race and/or compete themselves in the challenge. The regatta will attract 40-60 boats resulting in over 400 competitors, friends, family and yacht club members participating in both on and off water activities.

Beneteau Oceanis Yacht 54By Zuzana Prochazka

Beneteau saw an opportunity to add a little thrill to any cruising adventure, so they took the hull of the First 53 racer (introduced just last year), and with a few fashionable changes, created the Oceanis Yacht 54, the new entry-level of Beneteau’s swanky Oceanis Yacht line. The result is a performance cruiser that sails like a witch and looks like a grande dame.

Design

Roberto Biscontini is the naval architect and Lorenzo Argento created the details of the exterior and interior design.

Galvanic CorrosionIt’s a scary thought – but whether your boat is made of wood, fiberglass, aluminum or composite – it’s slowly deteriorating under you. Part of this is the nature of the marine environment: Sun, moisture, waves, wind, movement and vibration all contribute to components breaking down.

But there are other factors that are much more concerning and act at a significantly faster rate that the environment can take credit for. One of these is commonly spoken of, but not terribly well understood: Corrosion. As boaters, we’re concerned with two main types of corrosion: Galvanic and Stray-Current. This edition will focus on galvanic corrosion – in two weeks, stay tuned for info on stray-current.

Mia and Caleb's EngagementOn July 23 last year, CYOB published a piece on a beautifully restored 1967 Trojan 42 Motor Yacht in Oromocto NB. (That piece was also expanded in CY magazine later in the year.)

One of our Canadian Yachting contributors, Denise Miller, had shared the article on my social media and a young man reached out and asked if she could connect him with the owners of the boat, Dave and Barb. Denise leapt into action and Dave and Barb were thrilled. They concocted a plan that the young lady, Mia, thought she was coming to model for a sales brochure for Dave to do charter tours.
