2021 Ontario Regional Boat Shows Cancelled

Continuum Productions

Oct 8, 2020

Due to the on-going issues and concerns focused around the Covid-19 pandemic, Continuum Productions Inc. has made the difficult decision to cancel the 2021 Barrie, London & Hamilton Boat Fishing & Outdoor Shows for the first time in their history.

The health and well-being of our exhibitors and the safety of our loyal attendees is paramount to us. That is why, after consultation with public health officials as well as feedback from our exhibitors, our facility and our suppliers, we do not see any other option for the 2021 shows than to cancel for this year until we have a better handle on the Covid-19 situation.

With the shows scheduled to open in just a few short months we made this decision to wait and re-open in 2022 with full capacity in regards to both exhibit space and normal crowd sizes of buyers once it is deemed safe rather than to try to open in the midst of this pandemic in a high risk & capacity reduced show state.

Dwayne McKillop, President of Continuum Productions commented that “This is the only prudent course of action in the name of public safety. It, of course was not the desired path however it is the correct decision under the circumstances for everyone involved”

“We appreciate the patience and communication process with our loyal exhibitors throughout this and we look forward to welcoming you all back in person to the shows in 2022” McKillop said.

All exhibitors who were in the shows in 2020 will have their space and brands protected until the 2022 renewal deadline passes.

In the interim please stay safe and we wish you all the best until we see you in person again at the 2022 shows

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.
