New Hanse 410 nominated for British Yachting Awards

Oct 12, 2023

The British magazines Sailing Today and Yachts & Yachting have nominated the new Hanse 410 for the British Yachting Awards. Following the nomination for European Yacht of the Year 2024, this is the second time that the latest model in Hanse’s revolutionary new range has been included in the shortlist of potential winners of prestigious awards.

In addition to her unrivalled volume in the 40-foot class, the nomination highlights the yacht’s special environmental compatibility and optional electric drive. It offers an enormous range of up to 55 nautical miles. Performance sails made from recycled material or a fuel cell and solar panels to power the electrical appliances are further options for even more sustainability in this sailing yacht.

Last year, the first model from Hanse’s collaboration with Berret-Racoupeau, the Hanse 460, won both the European Yacht of the Year and the British Yachting Award.

The British Yachting Awards are a highly prestigious audience award. The winners will be announced jointly by the British magazines Sailing Today and Yachts & Yachting on the British Yachting Awards website on 28 November 2023.

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.
