The June issue of Canadian Yachting is the kickoff to the summer boating season and is bound to get you inspired!

This issue highlights two summer fun feature articles including a great lifestyle piece on all things fishing from Steven Bull, host of Water Ways TV. Expect tips and tricks for beginners, advice from fishing experts and some great images from across the country.

Amy Hogue has put together a guide to waterside patios along the Rideau Canal so you can plan your summer adventures around good food, views and ever-important canal side refreshments on those hot summer days.

The June issue features a power review of the Saxdor 200 by Andy Adams and a sail review of the Beneteau Oceanis Yacht 60 by Zuzana Prochazka. Andy Adams also writes about a new pontoon boat hydrofoiling concept, Hydrofin, that’s creating a better all-around boating experience.

Following her re-powering story in our May issue, Jennifer M. Smith is back with a re-painting story of their classic cruising sailboat. This time Green Ghost goes white!
There’s a special Georgian Bay feature on anchorages and service centres from Maple Leaf Marinas as well as John Morris’ Crossing the Line.

Once again, the Canadian Power and Sail Squadrons contribute their featured supplement The Port Hole. Speaking of CPS, they have just launched a new www.BoatLicenseCanada.ca website that features a user-friendly online course to help boaters get their boating license.

Our June magazine is the perfect issue to take with you out on the boat this summer. We hope this sparks some joy and excitement as we head out onto the water for another season of amazing boating adventures. Enjoy!
