Hi John

I have been meaning to say thanks for your supportive article for our Olympic sailors earlier this week! (CYOB August 12)

Thanks a ton!

Well done

Not sure this is a valid forum for comment, but I was disappointed with the available media coverage of sailing. Not a prime time featured sport, i guess, and on the cbc app I had to search for coverage. Rather than any highlights of Canadians, it was a 5 hour stream which is not easy to search for coverage. Is there a way to advocate for better coverage in the Paris Olympics?

Nevertheless, congratulations to the Canadian team. From what I did see, it was good competition, which makes for great racing, so well done!

While Canadians may have been slower to warm to pontoon boats than our southern neighbours, that’s definitely changed as we see more of them gracing our waters every year. The latest data shows pontoon boats now represent around 30% of all new boats sold in Canada and it’s easy to understand why – with their interior space and tremendous versatility, pontoons are near-perfect family runabouts.

Cruising Georgian Bay’s 30,000 Islands: Canada’s Freshwater Paradise for Boaters

The Plan

It’s a beautiful morning as we perform our pre-departure checklist, fire up the engines and prepare to release our lines. And if the long-range forecast of very low winds coupled with plenty of sunshine holds, that’s exactly what we need for the areas we plan to explore on this trip! 

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!
