Moorings Crewed CharterThe Moorings yacht charter company will debut Crewed vacations aboard its 514 Power Catamaran in the British Virgin Islands this fall.

Complete with a professional captain and gourmet chef, this all-inclusive charter option provides a premium and personalized way to vacation at sea. From mouthwatering meals to gorgeous attractions, Crewed charters deliver an exclusive experience built upon the specific needs of everyone aboard.

Offering ample room for up to six guests, The Moorings 514PC includes a luxurious layout with three en-suite guest staterooms; a fully furnished saloon with plush seating and full entertainment center; outdoor dining spaces, and spacious fly bridge with U-shaped seating, grill and bar, making it the perfect spot for dining and drinks with 360-degree visibility.

With a knowledgeable captain to navigate the journey, guests can effortlessly travel between all of their must-see attractions. And, thanks to the 514PC’s twin 350hp engines, they can do so in less time. Whether it’s the towering boulders of The Baths, the pristine beaches of Cooper Island or Virgin Gorda’s lively beachside bars, every location is always just a short cruise away.

Before departure, Moorings chefs make it a point to learn their passengers’ dining preferences, then craft a variety of customized meals, hors d’oeuvres and drinks over the course of their charter.  From traditional breakfasts like eggs benedict and fresh fruit to candle-lit dinners over grilled filet mignon and chardonnay, these professional chefs provide an all-inclusive dining experience unlike any other today.

“The BVIs are like a power yacht playground. You’ve basically got an all-access pass to dozens of different islands, things to do and some of the most beautiful sights in the Caribbean,” said Josie Tucci, General Manager of The Moorings. “Add a crew to the equation and you have two people who not only handle most of the work, but genuinely want to make your time here as unforgettable as possible.”

Available for booking now, Moorings 514PC Crewed charters will begin this November in the BVI. Carolina and Valentin offer more than 15 years of combined yachting experience with fluency in English, Spanish and Portuguese. For reservations and additional information, visit moorings.com/crewed.

Hanse 418By Katherine Stone

Optimized sailing performance and comfortable living – a sweet ride

The expression that came to mind immediately was “Sweet Ride” – and I wasn’t referring to the latest ride at the CNE, a chairlift, or a new Mercedes – it was the new Hanse 418, as it cleanly cut through the water in a gusty 15-20 knot breeze averaging 6-8 knots on Lake Ontario. She was easy to steer and manoeuver even in the big gusts. The extra length over the 388 has made a big difference, with German architects Judel/Vrolijk focusing on updates to the deck layout, cockpit and stern.

ChemainusBy Marianne Scott

The approach to the Chemainus Municipal Dock from Stuart Channel is straightforward and is protected from all but strong northerly winds. The only obstacle may be some large log booms often anchored in the harbour. The Dock is immediately south of the B.C. ferry terminal; the ferry runs to Thetis- and Penelakut Islands.

Harbourmaster Harmen Bootsma, who has been the cheerful, welcoming presence here for a couple of decades, is ready to catch your lines.

WinterizationBy Andrew McDonald, Lakeside Marine Services

“They don’t make ‘em like they used to”, is a phrase that many of us are familiar with. Most of the time it is in reference to a bygone era of better, and it’s used to lament the sorry state of what we have today. It is a phrase that can be applied to many areas of our lives: architecture, art, furniture, tools. Boats? I would argue that they don’t make them like they used to. But, is that lamentable, or is it progress?

Progress, I think. With this concept in mind, as we enter another season of putting boats to bed for the winter, why do we winterize as we always have?
