Our Photos of the week this time come from BC where our friend Rob Stokes sent us a very nice portfolio of peaceful stunners from the summer past.

Taken just outside Handfield Bay, north side of Sonora Island (part of the Discovery Group). We were just returning from a full day gunkholing in the dinghy and watching black bears roll rocks on the beach looking for shore crabs

Last minute reminder: At CYOB we need your photos to sustain us over the off-season. So please shoot and send them in before the season ends. The photo of the week can be anything photographed on or near your boat, kids, pets, lunch, costumes, racing, cruising, craziness, signs – you pick it and send your photos, with a bit of a back story, to CYonboard@Kerrwil.com and put POTW in the subject line.

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!
