Lakeshore Raft PartyAll Photos: Parker Media Management Inc.

The inaugural LSYC started with a simple concept – why not bring back the fun and good time racing of events of the past. A team of organizers put together a full slate of sponsors, a food truck and raft-up plan designed to bring a lot of people together for a summer party.

Racing was simple – a distance race to a new summer-permanent mark set in Clarkson for a distance course with the help of Fogh Marine.

It all worked out well, the weather was perfect and all had a great time.

The organizers report that the post event feedback has been awesome! “Thank you!! Glad everyone had a great time.”

The race was a good one with 46 boats registered in a series of PHRF starts. Complete results here. A number of participants claim to have won the party.

The Raft Party team asks participants to let them know if you would come back? If the people want it, they will bring it back in 2020!

CY Virtual Video Boat Tours

Virtual Boat ToursWe all love boats and nothing can break us up! So, what better way to spend our time than looking at interesting boats and going aboard in a virtual ride or tour. We have asked our friends at various dealers and manufacturers to help us assemble a one-stop online resource to experience some of the most interesting boats on the market today. Where the CY Team has done a review, we connect you to that expert viewpoint. If you can’t go boating, you can almost experience the thrill via your screen. Not quite the same, but we hope you enjoy our fine tour collection.

AXOPAR 37 XC

 

Axopar 37 XCWhole new ball game…

 

Set aside your assumptions and expectations for a few minutes while we try to describe the new Axopar 37 XC that made its American debut at the 2020 Miami International Boat Show. This boat represents a whole new ball game in terms of design, performance, seakeeping and functionality. In fact, I’d say it takes a ‘clean sheet of paper’ approach to boating – it’s that different.

Exiting Hogs BackBy John Morris

History: right after gym and just before chemistry class. Fifty minutes of naming the prime ministers by date and looking out the window. Who knew it was actually interesting.

And in some ways it hardly matters because the Rideau Waterway is just so amazingly beautiful. Driving your boat through the locks is wonderful fun for kids of all ages (adult kids, too) and the scenery is sensational. The history is a huge bonus however, and worth understanding from both as a political lesson and from an engineering perspective.
