The Marlow Marine Cruising Club 20th Annual Spring Rendezvous was held on May 5th thru May 8th at the Faro Blanco Resort and Yacht Club in Marathon, Florida. A record number of members and guests arrived by boat, plane or car to attend this highly anticipated event. Those arriving by boat were treated to a full exterior washing by the select crew upon their arrival.

At registration check in, attendees were given a custom embroidered boat name goodie bag. The Cinco de Mayo theme was prevalent with the Margarita glasses and the custom Fiesta tin with multi colours throughout. A beautiful relaxed setting with warm summer breezes greeted guests as they arrived for the Welcome Reception. A carefully selected menu provided the Fiesta flare with Mexican cuisine, passed hors d’ oeuvres and open bar. The true spirit of the event could readily be seen as members greeted old friends and met new members.

The following two mornings, after breakfast, seminars were given to a filled room. Seminars were purposely selected to be meaningful to members. In addition to the seminar topics of engine maintenance, A/C and heads maintenance, Yacht Controller demo and product update, members were presented with a very special
presentation on Cuba Bound travels by boat. The seminars concluded with the ever popular Marlow Round Table discussions led by David Marlow and the Marlow Crew.

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. Messing about in brand-new boats on a champagne sailing day on Lake Ontario at the beginning of the summer doesn’t get any better. To have the new owner, Helmuth Strobel and Anchor Yachts dealer Pancho Jimenez aboard made it even more special, as they can also speak to what they truly enjoy about the boat. We keep our own boat in a harbour that has a long waiting list for boats over 35 feet, so this little gem would definitely fit the bill and feels like a much bigger boat. True to the spirit of the 7th generation Oceanis line, the 34.1 is built in Poland and replaces the 35.1. It is 1,000 lbs lighter, 14 cm narrower and has 29% more sail area.

Telegraph Cove—from Resource Community to Tourist Delight

Text and photos by Marianne Scott

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.
