Fuel ContainmentClean Marine BC hosted representatives from eight marinas, three yacht clubs, and a harbour authority from around B.C. for a full-day training session on responding to spills. The session included theoretical and hands-on activities that support marinas with planning, preparing, responding and mitigating small-scale marine spills that could unintentionally happen on their docks.

Held on November 26 at Deckside Marina in Richmond, B.C., participants also ran through a mock spill scenario that involved a moored vessel.

Mock Spill Scenario“Even small-scale oil spills pose tremendous potential damage to our water and ecosystems, so being able to effectively respond to fuel and other contaminants entering the water will increase the chances of mitigating the harm,” says Chrisitanne Wilhelmson, Executive Director of Georgia Strait Alliance, which runs Clean Marine BC. “We are very proud to offer this training to our CMBC members.”

Spill training is a unique component of the Clean Marine BC program, which is a voluntary eco-certification program for recreational boating facilities across British Columbia.

Congratulations to the many volunteers and organizations who make it their mission to keep our recreational boating facilities pristine.

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. Our Virtual Show will continue to grow so visit frequently and check it out. 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.

KingstonBy Amy Hogue

Cruise into the city of Kingston, Ontario, and it will quickly become clear that this city and surrounding waterways have something special. Built around the northern shore of Lake Ontario, Kingston is the place to go if you love to explore new waterways, fantastic views, and exceptional boating opportunities.

Sitting at the intersection of three world-class Canadian bodies of water, Lake Ontario, the St. Lawrence River, and the UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Rideau Canal (Cataraqui River from Kingston to Newboro), the water’s influence is deeply woven into Kingston’s culture and history.
