Vids OnBoard: Beating the November Mehs

Vids Onboard


Nov 23, 2017

November may be the crummiest month. Everyone I talk to already has the boat deprivation blues and it is such a long way until spring. Fortunately, Santa is on his way and there will be distractions but here at CYOB we feel a duty to connect you to some dark weather dreaming.







First, the new Jeanneau Sun Oddessy 440 on the Severn River (in the US unfortunately):


 Beneteau’s new Gran Turismo 50 will certainly give you some exciting dreams. Take a look at

Finally, The International One Design, a much less challenging boat, at least budget-wise coming alive in Nova Scotia:


Enjoy and in the meantime don’t look out the window. It’s pretty grey!

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.

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.

Many of their descendants still live in the area.

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