ElbowcayDamage from Hurricane Dorian at Elbow Cay

From: Mike

Subject: Abacos

Well sed, from an old salt down in New Orleans and surrounding waters. I’ve always enjoyed your articles.

 

 

Dear CYOB,

I just read your editorial comments about the devastation caused by Hurricane Dorian in the Abacos. Sadly, a tropical storm is projected to pass over these islands this weekend.

Twenty years ago, these islands were devastated by Hurricane Floyd (Force 4/5), requiring massive reconstruction efforts to ensure charter sailors would return to these enchanted islands.

I thought you might be interested in reading the article I wrote, eight months after Floyd. We can only hope for the same outcome after Dorian.

Shrink Wrap2020 is a year of change – self-isolation, social distancing, quarantine, and working remotely have become the norm. For many, this has been a bitter pill to swallow. Another bitter pill for boaters is the delay of the season. Provincial laws differ – so terms like ‘essential’ aren’t translating widely across the marine world.

In BC, marinas remain open and fuel is available, sometimes with conditions. In Ontario, marinas, boat launches, yacht clubs and the professionals that service the marine industry aren’t considered essential, unless the service and location allows a person to access their permanent residence only accessible by boat.

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.
