Sharon Green’s 2016 Ultimate Sailing Calendar Delivers New Level of ‘Fresh-to-Frightening’ Images

Ultimate Sailing Calendar 2016

“Just when you think you’ve seen it all, the round-the-world races have delivered some of the most breathtaking images of our times,” says Sharon Green, creator of The Ultimate Sailing Calendar. “I have always thought of sailing as ‘harnessed power,’ and these photos illustrate it impeccably! The world’s best sailors, in the most punishing conditions, on the edge of control … yet still holding the reins. It is pure inspiration, and Ultimate Sailing at its finest.”

Green has been producing The Ultimate Sailing Calendar since 1983, and the new 2016 editions takes her signature ‘fresh-to-frightening’ imagery to a new level. Twelve months of high gloss, high octane action are featured: a 100-foot superyacht attacks the Caribbean at full tilt; the Bay of Biscay devours an IMOCA 60; Melges 20s swarm Lake Garda; and more. Over-sized and over-the-top; the spectacular 2016 Ultimate Sailing Calendar is a ‘must’ on the holiday shopping list for sailors and adrenaline junkies alike.

The Ultimate Sailing Calendar is high quality offset printed on durable Forest Stewardship Council certified stock, with environmentally friendly Linseed and Soya oil based ink, for fade-free color and long-lasting impact. Oversized format – 24 by 18 inches when displayed – dramatically portrays two images per month, with ample notation space.

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.
