Skyline Marina Presents Ladies At The Helm at Bayport Yachting Centre

Ladies Only! This is an opportunity to learn how to be comfortable behind the helm of your boat.

Skyline Marina welcomes you to join Ladies At The Helm and spend some time learning the basic handling skills that will make you more able at the helm and give you a better understanding of how to manoeuvre a pleasure boat.

Expert instructors, on beautiful Sea Ray boats using both single engine and twin engine with Axius (Joystick technology) engines, will make docking and general operation a much less daunting task and, with some practice, there’s no reason for you not to feel comfortable in taking your friends out for an afternoon on the water.

There are four sessions available for either single or twin engine operation. The date/times are: Friday July 6th 1-4pm and 5-8pm / Saturday July 7th 9am-12noon and 1-4pm. The event will take place at Bayport Yachting Centre, 156 Marina Park Drive, Midland.

There is NO CHARGE but you must register as space is limited. To register please call 877-759-8333 x 100 or email with your first and second choices and whether you need instruction on single or twin engines and please indicate whether or not you have a valid pleasure craft operators card and experience handling a boat.

Only participants with a valid Pleasure Craft Operators Card will be able to take the actual helm.

The folks at Skyline Marina look forward to seeing you and helping to give you the confidence to truly be a “Lady at The Helm”.

Serious Fun at the St. Maarten Heineken Regatta

By Allegra Smith-Herriott

As the plane started its descent, bright blue skies gave way to crystal clear turquoise waters as we skimmed over the famous Maho Beach. Exiting the airport, I was hit with a wall of warm salty air from the northeast trade winds. Nothing compares to arriving in the Caribbean.

From the airport, I headed to the Regatta Village in Port de Plaisance. Wednesday being ‘Day 0’ was registration day of the Regatta. Teams were out on the water to shake out sails, on the docks making last-minute preparations and in the Regatta Village for registration and most importantly picking up their cases of Heineken.
