POTW: We need a boatload

Dark Sky Preview

Aug 23, 2018

We don’t want to invoke panic, but our next edition of Photo of the Week will be in September. That means that the summer photo season is drawing to a close. In a couple of weeks, the coloured leaves change the backdrop of your summer boat shots so this is the week. 

At CYOB we NEED your photos and we need a lot of them to sustain us over the off-season. So please shoot and send them in pronto. Just to review, 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.

We will carefully curate your shots for sharing over the upcoming chilly season so try to pack them with warmth.
Here is a couple of great shots left over from this season’s crop (but this leaves the cupboard bare, so get shooting!)

Here’s a chilly shot taken last winter from C-Tow to scare you about what’s coming.

Sylvan G3 CLZ DC: Luxury For Everyone

Sylvan’s brilliant G3 CLZ DC brings an entirely new level of performance, comfort and versatility to Canadian boaters.

By Craig Ritchie

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

By Elizabeth Wilson, “Georgian Bay Beauties” (www.GeorgianBayBeauties.org)

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!
