Alberta Skiing – Now here’s a shot that doubled me up!! The person who submitted it – Steve Mac – calls it “Typical Alberta skiing weather!” Thanks Steve

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.

The Plan

It’s a beautiful morning as we perform our pre-departure checklist, fire up the engines and prepare to release our lines. And if the long-range forecast of very low winds coupled with plenty of sunshine holds, that’s exactly what we need for the areas we plan to explore on this trip! 

We are departing Midland for a week of visiting some of the islands and anchorages within Georgian Bay’s “30,000 Islands” – specifically those along the western edge. These are the less protected islands which face toward wide-open Georgian Bay, where boaters often have to depart the small craft route and work a little harder at setting the hook but are then rewarded with magnificent western views, stunning sunsets, and so much to explore!
