WOW Regatta 2016

WOW 2016

June 1, 2016

The 6th WOW Regatta will be held June 18th hosted at Etobicoke Yacht Club.

Last year there were 14 boats and 65 women that got out on the water and had a blast all day long!

Organizers look forward to another fun filled day starting at 9am registration in the club house at EYC, skippers meeting at 10 and off the dock by 11:30. There will be two starts this year, a spinnaker then a white sail (providing we have enough boats for spin class).

The day will end with a catered dinner at 6pm of Chicken Breast Forestier or a Portabella Mushroom stuffed with goat cheese, followed by the ever popular award presentations.

Always a fun filled day with women helping women on the water, WOW!

You must be pre-registered by June 10! Cost is $15 crew, $10 skipper with a boat and $15 for the catered dinner, cash due at registration.

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. Messing about in brand-new boats on a champagne sailing day on Lake Ontario at the beginning of the summer doesn’t get any better. To have the new owner, Helmuth Strobel and Anchor Yachts dealer Pancho Jimenez aboard made it even more special, as they can also speak to what they truly enjoy about the boat. 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.

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.
