POTW: WOW, Larry

Sunset in the Broughtons

May 27, 2021

Our Photo of the Week (POTW) is the winner of the Canadian Yachting Media online WOW Photo Contest. The lucky winner has been awarded a Wow Watersports 2BER Tube courtesy of WOW Watersports. That winner was Captn’ Mac, Larry MacDonald who took this fabulous shot of Potts Lagoon on a five week cruise through the Broughtons, in the island-studded wilderness of British Columbia for five weeks last summer. Btw Captn’ Mac had his gift prize sent to niece Julie and her family in Calgary.

Your shot could be next week’s POTW. Just send anything including a boat, shot from a boat or a picture of someone thinking about a boat (our rules are pretty relaxed) to cyonboard@kerrwil.com and put POTW in the subject line.

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.
