Help Grant A Holiday Wish This Season

Children's Wish Calendar 2014

The 2014 Edition of the Children’s Wish BOATING Calendar is now available!   This will be the 4th year of this calendar program which raises funds for The Children’s Wish Foundation of Canada, who work with the community to provide children with high risk, life-threatening illnesses the opportunity to realize their most heartfelt wish.

We are thankful to the Boating Community who sponsor and support this project year after year – sponsor dollars go to offset all the costs of production and printing, allowing virtually all proceeds from actual calendar sales to go directly to Children’s Wish.  These beautiful calendars have something for every boater – and with the Holidays just are the corner, they make wonderful gifts.

Help us make this the best year ever – so order yours NOW!

We met with Neptunus Managing Director Jan Willem De Jong this past fall to take the new Neptunus 650F out in Lake Ontario.

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.
