Canada's Cup Trials July 25 2016

Hollandia wins the Defender Series for the 24th Canada’s Cup trials sailed on Lake Ontario in Toronto this past weekend. (#Canadascup #yearofthe8) www.canadascup.org . After six days of racing (two weekends of trials), neither boat had achieved a winning score, which resulted in racing an additional day to determine the winner – the first boat to score 14 points. The teams spared nothing to win this series – from tacking duals, luffing matching, hunting and even a collision. The series kept the sailors on their toes all weekend long. This made it very exciting for the over 100 spectator boats that came out to watch over the series.

“The series was very competitive and challenging. We had to win four consecutive races yesterday and today. We had many ups and downs including a midnight vigil for boat repairs. Our team never wavered in their commitment. Every time we practice or raced, we learn more about how to make the boat go fast. We have also developed a strong crew camaraderie and work ethic. We are looking forward to more hard work leading up to the Canada’s Cup in September. The team is excited to race against Yquem in September”, says Bryan Gooderham skipper of Hollandia.

N.b. 1.25 points were scored due to a penalty. They failed to avoid a collision at the start.

The Canada’s Cup, an America’s Cup style sailboat match-race competition, between Canada and the United States, attracts high performance sailors from across the region to compete in Great Lakes sailing excellence. Gefion, Hollandia and Layfayette partook in the 17 race round robin series of match-races, a one-on-one style of sailboat racing, to decide who will represent Canada in the 24th Canada’s Cup. This is the 120th anniversary of the Cup, begun in 1896. The last challenge was won by Canada in 2011. The US has won 13 times, Canada has won 10 times and is the current Defender.

Canada's Cup Trial The Canadian Defender Series is a two-part round robin elimination series in which the first yacht to win 14 points will become the official Defender for the Canada’s Cup Championship match series in September. Part one scores one point per win while part Two of the series will score double points per win. Hollandia scored 14.25 in the end and will take part in The 24th Canada’s Cup in September. www.canadascup.org

Beneteau Oceanis Yacht 54By Zuzana Prochazka

Beneteau saw an opportunity to add a little thrill to any cruising adventure, so they took the hull of the First 53 racer (introduced just last year), and with a few fashionable changes, created the Oceanis Yacht 54, the new entry-level of Beneteau’s swanky Oceanis Yacht line. The result is a performance cruiser that sails like a witch and looks like a grande dame.

Design

Roberto Biscontini is the naval architect and Lorenzo Argento created the details of the exterior and interior design.

Galvanic CorrosionIt’s a scary thought – but whether your boat is made of wood, fiberglass, aluminum or composite – it’s slowly deteriorating under you. Part of this is the nature of the marine environment: Sun, moisture, waves, wind, movement and vibration all contribute to components breaking down.

But there are other factors that are much more concerning and act at a significantly faster rate that the environment can take credit for. One of these is commonly spoken of, but not terribly well understood: Corrosion. As boaters, we’re concerned with two main types of corrosion: Galvanic and Stray-Current. This edition will focus on galvanic corrosion – in two weeks, stay tuned for info on stray-current.

Mia and Caleb's EngagementOn July 23 last year, CYOB published a piece on a beautifully restored 1967 Trojan 42 Motor Yacht in Oromocto NB. (That piece was also expanded in CY magazine later in the year.)

One of our Canadian Yachting contributors, Denise Miller, had shared the article on my social media and a young man reached out and asked if she could connect him with the owners of the boat, Dave and Barb. Denise leapt into action and Dave and Barb were thrilled. They concocted a plan that the young lady, Mia, thought she was coming to model for a sales brochure for Dave to do charter tours.
