2nd Annual Port Credit Spring Boat Show a Success

{videobox}xcR54Pg6lkA{/videobox}The second annual Canadian Yachting Magazine Port Credit Spring Boat Show was held over the weekend at the Port Credit Village Marina. Friday was a spectacular Day followed by good Saturday and then a lousy cold and rainy day Sunday. That said a strong flow of boaters seeking to see a wide selection of new and old sail and power yachts carried out through the whole weekend. The first two days had a festive feeling and the exhibitors enjoyed the crowds that came through the show. But on the Sunday the visitors coming to look at the boats for sail were a hardier group and foul weather gear was worn by most. 

All said the show was a strong success the vendors and boat dealers are already setting the stage is for next year’s Spring boat show.

Over the years Canadian Yachting has had the pleasure of doing several boat review articles on new Neptunus models and we are familiar with the qualities that Neptunus is famous for. They have all been exceptional yachts, but this is the one I would most want to own myself. It’s a personal choice and a matter of taste as to whether you would prefer to have a sedan express model or a flybridge but in my opinion, the flybridge layout offers some wonderful attributes.

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.
