Boating SeasonSometimes a photo comes our way that is just so crazy, it’s irresistible. There are so many questions here – why? How? Can these guys look so unaware of their nine-engine rig?

D. DangerOur Photo of the Week comes from Correspondent at Large and celebrated foredeck vagrant, D. Danger Mitchele, who somehow ended up in Spain during COVID and has been making the best of it thanks to an abundant supply of fine Spanish wine and a new boat project.

Pier Sixty-Six Hotel and MarinaOur Photo of the Week comes from sunny Florida. In Fort Lauderdale, Florida's Pier Sixty-Six Hotel and Marina is synonymous with the yachting lifestyle and annually hosts the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show.

Siku and MurphyOurs is the 'yacht dog', his name is Siku (which means ice in Inuit we are told - as he has blue eyes) and the 'dock dog' is Murphy. The dogs are old friends!

VOTWOur Video of the Week comes from Canadian Yachting’s epicurean crusaders, the Galley Guys. It’s not entirely clear why, in this episode, the trio are making a meal of white wine and asparagus.

The GrinchOK, stop the presses. This photo just came in from Beacon Bay. Clearly those folks know how to get into POTW!! Again!

POTWThe mighty St John as it flows from beyond Fredericton around Ox Island above Gagetown is some of the loveliest stretch for boating as you can see. These shots just popped up in the POTW inbox from Denise Miller. We’re already looking forward to next season! Thanks Denise.

Beacon Bay Post Storm - Kristin CummingsKristin Cummings, Operations Manager at Beacon Bay Marina took this shot after the skies broke loose on a Friday, a couple weeks back.

Luna Rossa AC75Our Photo of the Week (two, in fact) comes from New Zealand where the second America’s Cup AC 75 Luna Rossa boat was launched Tuesday morning in the presence of the families of the Luna Rossa Prada Pirelli Team and a small group of friends and local suppliers close to the team in its New Zealand venture.
