Mid-Feb Waiting Game

While West-Coasters are enjoying unseasonably warm winter weather Ontario is waiting out a longer-than-usual deep freeze in mid-February and Atlantic Canada is buried in snow, we are all awaiting Spring with great anticipation. Hamilton, Halifax and Otttawa all have boat shows coming up if you are venturing out, and in this issue we also highlight the new Beneteau/Sailtime partnership, the incredible Jeanneau 64, a 2 for 1 deal on lock passes on the waterways and much more. Good reading to you.
