Foiling: Canadian Waszp Championships buzz Stingston

Canadian Waszp Championships

July 21, 2022

Portsmouth Harbour in Kingston was the site of this weekend’s Canadian Waszp Class Championship with 18 boats on the line. While the winds did not fully cooperate, the regatta was able to stage six races and bring the fleet together for its biggest event ever in this country.

The Waszp class is supported by CAN Sail GP which, through its We CAN FIL initiative has brought enthusiastic encouragement and several boats to foiling in Canada. The philosophy is to help the Canadian Sail GP concept by creating excitement across the country, developing foiling sailors and ardent fans.

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.
