One Great Lake, One Giant Screen: Sail In Cinema August 18-20 2016

Sail In Cinema

Aug 9, 2016

PortsToronto presents Sail-In Cinema™, the world’s first two-sided floating movie experience of it’s kind.

On August 18-20, 2016 Canada’s Sugar Beach will transform into Toronto’s largest outdoor movie theatre. Movies will be shown under the open skies on a two-sided screen set atop a barge in Toronto Harbour. You can watch movies for free from Sugar Beach or Lake Ontario, and this year there are no tickets required to attend.

Gates will open at 6:00 p.m. each night with the film starting at approximately 8:00 p.m.

If you’ve got your sea legs, you can come to the movies by boat and drop anchor.

If you’re a landlubber, bring a chair, a cushion or a picnic blanket.

Think Sail-In Cinema™ sounds like an awesome event? You’re not the only one. Sail-In Cinema™ won Gold at Marketing Magazine’s Marketing Awards for best Experiential/Stunts/Events initiative of 2011 as well as Silver for best in Commercial Services at the Media Innovation Awards and a Certificate of Merit for advertising from the The Advertising & Design Club of Canada in 2012.

The inaugural Sail-In Cinema™ was held in 2011 to mark PortsToronto centennial year. Sail-In-Cinema 2015 was the largest on record with over 11,000 people on-land and over 100 boats in attendance over three days.

Sail-In Cinema™ is now a permanent fixture on Toronto’s summer calendar.

While Sail-In Cinema is a free event, there is limited seating on the landside and entry is subject to availability of space. Boat mooring will be available on a first-come, first-serve basis. Non-stop activities, food and entertainment will once again be offered by event sponsors prior to the start of each night’s feature film to provide a full evening of fun for all ages.

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.
