POTW: A sign of the times


Mar 26, 2020

We hardly need tell you about the pandemic but it’s worth noting that the marine industry is acting to mitigate the situation where it can. That makes this Photo of the Week an ultra timely. Let’s hope we can take these signs down soon.

This image from a Steveston outlet in BC captures it all.

Your POTW photo can range from this kind of thing to, hopefully, much happier shots. That reminds us, all the POTWs are available on canadianyachting.ca archives if you are looking to spend some time in our Happy Place.

In the meantime, please get your phones and cameras out to capture spring launch, boaters helping others or just plain having some good times aboard or around your boat. Send your shots to cyonboard@kerrwil.com and put POTW in the subject.

Now wash your hands.

However, by embracing innovative solutions and adopting sustainable practices, both marinas and boaters hold the key to preserving and enhancing the quality of our lakes and marine life for generations to come.
