From the Helm of Adamant 1 (a note) – January 2017

Adamant 1

Jan 10, 2016

Remember I told you the story of how the dolphin guided us into an anchorage in 2008? We had though that so spooky, for lack of a better word. Well the pic here of the dolphin beside the boat was the same thing.

I kept getting a spray of water on me and finally I looked over the side of the boat to see why as there wasn’t any waves. And there was the dolphin, trying to get my attention by spraying me. After I took the pic, I checked the chart plotter and sure enough, we were just outside of the dredged channel…inside the markers, but not quite in the deep water. I moved the boat over into the deep water, went back to take more pics and he was gone. His job was done. So there are dolphins that are Adamant 3assigned to look after foolish sailors!

Amazing. Cheers. Lynn

New Boats: Beneteau Oceanis 34.1 – A Sleek, Good -Looking Delight To Sail

By Katherine Stone

There is nothing more that I enjoy than being with friends and messing about in boats. Messing about in brand-new boats on a champagne sailing day on Lake Ontario at the beginning of the summer doesn’t get any better. To have the new owner, Helmuth Strobel and Anchor Yachts dealer Pancho Jimenez aboard made it even more special, as they can also speak to what they truly enjoy about the boat. We keep our own boat in a harbour that has a long waiting list for boats over 35 feet, so this little gem would definitely fit the bill and feels like a much bigger boat. True to the spirit of the 7th generation Oceanis line, the 34.1 is built in Poland and replaces the 35.1. It is 1,000 lbs lighter, 14 cm narrower and has 29% more sail area.
