The April 2016 issue of Canadian Yachting magazine includes a beautiful West Coast destination, Swan Lake in B.C. by Linda Leitch, a colourful rundown of Clarity Nicoll’s experience competing in a major regatta in the BVI’s and Jennifer Harker’s Georgian Bay Cruise last summer; all beautiful and inspiring destinations!

In anticipation of the start of the 2016 season, we feature two important articles of a technical nature. Boating authority Rob MacLeod researches and explains the sometimes mysterious ways your propeller works and how to ensure best performance in the season to come. 

 

Then a wave of Underwater Lighting is sweeping across Canada for whole range of reasons from important safety benefits all the way to good old rock ‘n roll!

 

We hope you enjoy this issue and that you are gearing up for great boating in 2016!
