POTWOur Photo of the Week is actually a Video of the Week that came our way from Rick Shaddock of Squamish Yacht Club. What a venue.

Here’s what Rick writes:

I've been shooting the SOAR races in video and still for Inflow Express (Friday afternoon race to Squamish from Porteau Cove) and official race day (Saturday) since 2003. I edit about a ten-minute video set to music for the Saturday night on a large screen and under the stars. Example here. 15 years of video and still now.

Please send us yours!! The POTW rules are simple. It has to be your shot, taken in and around boats or from a boat. Or anything else boat-ish. Or any great photo of docks, ports, winches, engine parts, people, and pets on boats, of course. You shoot it, we’ll include it.

Send your photos to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. with POTW in the subject and we’ll get them into the publication soon! Thanks in advance.

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.
