The Marex 310 Sun Cruiser

Watch for the October issue of Canadian Yachting. It’s packed! 

Check the blue-water Marex 310 Sun Cruiser, a reasonably-sized family cruiser with Volvo Penta diesel power and impressive performance that’s new to Canada.

Our sail review is on the Bali 4.4 Open Space sailing catamaran that is like a luxury condo you can take almost anywhere. And you could buy one for a charter fleet, get to use it yourself as you desire and have others pay for it and maintain it when you’re busy!

In the October Waypoints Winter Cruising issue of Canadian Yachting, the Galley Guys (and Gals) go Barefootin’ St. Vincent & the Grenadines sailing that glorious 45’ Bali 4.4 catamaran through some of the most perfect tropical islands anywhere. White sand beaches, palm trees by the shore and lush tropical islands caressed by warm breezes actually are, just what you dream of!

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!
