For the entire August long weekend, Friday July 31 to Monday, August 3, five participating Ontario marinas – Bay Port, Beacon Bay, Paragon Marina, South Bay Cove and Wye Heritage  - donated ten cents for every litre of fuel sold to the Georgian Bay General Hospital Foundation.

By the end of the weekend, the five had almost achieved 100,000 litres and would have if Mother Nature hadn’t rained on the parade. Nonetheless, the final tally showed that the fundraiser of $8,593 from 85,593 litres of fuel surpassed its $10,000 goal helped by a $600 donation from an anonymous boater and a further $1,407 from Dave Rozycki, President of Maple Leaf Marinas.

Neptunus 650F

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.

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.
