In response to last issued POTW of Ketch 22 from Hilton Beach, ON, we received a couple of good ones:

Mike Vollmer sent along pun-ny name, “No Gust, No Glory” and promises us a photo from Chippewa ON.

From Hamilton, Tom Roesslein sent along HELOC which, as it turns out, stands for Home Equity Line Of Credit. Seems appropriate.

More on Severn II
Collision avoidance is the paramount responsibility of any vessel underway whether racing or not. Basic rules concerning right of way have to be considered when undertaking any maneuver and still rank behind avoiding collision if possible whether in the right or not.

In the Severn II and Yquem incident it is very fortunate no one was injured or worse. The eights are very heavy vessels with powerful rigs and carry a huge amount of momentum. Vessel collisions are caused by equipment failure or human error. The latter is easily managed.

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.

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.

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.
