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.

The latest data shows pontoon boats now represent around 30% of all new boats sold in Canada and it’s easy to understand why – with their interior space and tremendous versatility, pontoons are near-perfect family runabouts.

Cruising Georgian Bay’s 30,000 Islands: Canada’s Freshwater Paradise for Boaters

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!
