CY Media Webinar Update

Demo Board

May 28, 2020

Demo BoardCanadian Yachting Media initiated a series of webinars to stimulate interest in taking on projects during the Covid 19 pandemic. The purpose of webinars was to inform and to start conversations between boat owners and marine professionals – both marine supply stores and technicians. The first two seminars have been an unqualified success, both selling out in very short order. Both webinars are online for ongoing viewing. We will also post these links on Canadian Yachting’s Facebook Page. Feel free to share.

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.
