Fall Photos

Dec 7, 2023

Thanks for participating in our Fall Colours Photo Contest. The most liked photos on our Instagram @cpsboat were:

1st place was submitted by Sandi Little from Manitouwabing Lake, Ontario.

2nd place was submitted by Elizabeth Wilson. Georgian Bay’s east shore, October 28th, tucked away in anticipation of a big blow which never materialized! I love fall boating for days like this – it feels like you’ve been handed a little gift of summer, if only for a short time.

3rd place was last cruise of the year, submitted by Linda Hamilton. This photo was taken at Poonamalie Lock Station on the Rideau Canal and features Sassy Jody 1963 Chris, owned by Linda and Terry Hamilton.

Congratulations! The top photo will be printed and published in the next issue of Port Hole published by Canadian Boating.

Watch for our upcoming Photo Contest announcement in January along with an exciting prize for the winner!

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.

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.
