Merry Christmas from Your Friends at Canadian Yachting and Boating Industry Canada Magazines!


Your friends at Canadian Yachting and Boating Industry Canada magazines want to thank you for your enthusiastic support of our many marine media vehicles throughout 2011. We have had an excellent year and our list of subscribers has grown. We are gratified by this and we want to take this time to wish you, your families and friends a very Merry Christmas and a happy holiday season!

Canada has been a bright spot in the global marine industry this year, and for the past few years. We should take a moment to appreciate our good fortune during a time when many of our peers in other countries are suffering. No one can say for sure what lies ahead in 2012, but we feel confident that the dedicated and talented people in the Canadian marine industry will continue to find ways to succeed. We look forward to seeing you at the winter boat shows in Toronto, Vancouver, Halifax and other cities while we all wait for the sun and hot temperatures to return.

From our whole team at Canadian Yachting, Boating Industry Canada, SailWorld Canada, PowerBoat World Canada and SailWorld Cruising Canada – Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

We are departing Midland for a week of visiting some of the islands and anchorages within Georgian Bay’s “30,000 Islands” – specifically those along the western edge. These are the less protected islands which face toward wide-open Georgian Bay, where boaters often have to depart the small craft route and work a little harder at setting the hook but are then rewarded with magnificent western views, stunning sunsets, and so much to explore!
