Typical Alberta skiing weather!

This CY Onboard feature celebrates your photos. And they have rolled in – just two so far, but we want more, more, more.

They can be funny, beautiful, weird, or simply reflective of the boating lifestyle. Whatever they are, we will share them with all of Canada and reward you for taking them.

How will we reward you? Well, fame of course. Then, there will also be big time swag – we will root around in the CY basement and dig up some suitable rewards to share.

Here are the rules – they must be taken from or near a boat. They must be your shots and free from copyright. Most importantly, they must be wonderful. Send theto us via CYonboard@kerrwil.com and put Photo in the subject line.

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.

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.
