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!

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.

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.

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.
