Canadian Yachting December Sneak Peek

CY December Sneak Peek



The December issue of Canadian Yachting magazine will feature the latest in exciting new marine electronics that bring you greater capabilities and are easier to use, while taking you safely to places you might not have ever gone before!

The technological advances are impressive but there’s something else that is really important – you want to see where you are going with clarity and with the colour rendition to be able to spot the red and green markers at a distance. That takes a great pair of binoculars!

But what’s the difference between great binoculars and ordinary ones?

Rob MacLeod, The Informed Boater,  has researched the key ingredients of great binoculars for a feature story that is a must read before you go shopping this Christmas!

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.
