Canadian Yachting Magazine at the 2014 Toronto International Boat Show

CY at TIBS 2014

Good crowds and an upbeat attitude characterized the first few days of the 2014 Toronto International Boat Show and the Canadian Yachting magazine booth has been a busy place!

Dealers say that serious buyers were out and on opening day, the parking lots were close to full just two hours after opening. Crowds were steady all day.

Again, Canadian Yachting magazine set up our “CYNN” boat show news network video studio and we interviewed several key industry people; Ron Huibers, President of Volvo Penta Americas, Maryline O’Shea, head of marketing for Beneteau in North America, Bentley Collins, VP Marketing and Sales at Sabre and Back Cove Yachts and others.

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!
