Seasonal Photo of the Week

Ho-ho-ho. Our Photo of the week comes from Sunday’s Santa Parade. Clowning around was Paul Henderson multi-medal sailing champion, Member of IOC etc. His resume goes on extensively but he appears pretty happy on shore, walking the Parade route.





Here’s what Paul wrote in a note with his pic

Yesterday was the Santa Claus Parade Day in Toronto.

I was born 83 years ago on this day.

120 Sponsors help fund the parade and get the right to be a clown.

Thanks to those who gave me this Birthday Present.

My God he has Hair!!

It was great fun walking for 8 km and seeing the kids from so many different backgrounds and then going back to the RCYC and seeing the kids there.

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.

Telegraph Cove—from Resource Community to Tourist Delight

Text and photos by Marianne Scott

Telegraph Cove is a small indent situated on Johnstone Strait in the Salish Sea, 15nm southeast of Port McNeill and near Robson Bight, famous for its orca-rubbing beaches. The village has experienced many iterations with a long history—the harbour once served as a summer camp for the Kwakwaka’wakw who fished and hunted here beginning about 8,000 years ago. Many of their descendants still live in the area.

It’s a hopping place in the summer—winter only caretakers remain on site.
