Follow us on a bareboat charter through the famous Thousand Islands and then south to Hampton, Virginia where John Morris joins the Salty Dog Rally, a cruising rally that follows its participants through to the British Virgin Islands. Next, Rob MacLeod details the trials and tribulations of Confident Sailor / Reluctant Sailor as he and his partner prepare for their return trip to the Bahamas on CS36 Traditional – Sojourn. And on our West Coast the authors of the Sea Salt cookbook give us a taste of West Coast fresh and locally sourced culinary delights.

June’s yacht club profile is the Charlottetown Yacht Club and across the pond John Morris leads us through the extensive offerings and exciting finds at the BOOT Dusseldorf boat show. Boat reviews for this issue include profiles of the Neptunus 65 and the MJM 50z. Lots to sink your teeth into!

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