Register for the CPS-ECP AGM and CONFERENCE 2022

Save Before September 4th.

October in Toronto is wonderful and planning now, can extend your enjoyment of early fall. Temperatures are still very pleasant in Toronto. Daytime highs average 14ºC/57ºF so people pull on their favorite cozy sweaters to enjoy more patio time, outdoor markets and walks through Toronto’s impressive park systems. Layering is advised in October as the morning could be cool and the afternoon could be warm and a few raindrops could get into the mix. Autumn foliage is outstanding and with Toronto’s extensive green space there is an abundance of color.

Friday night at the AGM and Conference is always an enjoyable party and this year will be no exception.

You are invited to dress in the costume that best represents your own ethnic origin. If you have mixed origin you may want to mix it up but you don’t have to.
Planning your costume can be as much fun as winning a prize for best costume! If you don’t plan a costume you are welcome in casual attire. The theme for the party is “Toronto Welcomes the World”. It’s a great evening to visit, meet face to face in person, relax and be yourself. Dinner will be a multicultural buffet from Sheraton’s great chefs while we enjoy a visit from Scottish Highland Dancers, prizes and more visiting at the Great Lakes Hospitality Suite.

We haven’t been together for 2 years so let’s get ready, get set, go!

October will be here before you know it. Plan to attend. We are looking forward to seeing you there.

Neptunus 650F Review

Neptunus 650F 400

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.

The Other Virgin Islands

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.
