First Week of Spring

Outside my window right now it is pouring rain, which is a welcome sight after the sub-zero few months we have endured. The waters will be high as the snow melts so please remember to take precautions around rivers, ditches, bridges and all other waterways. This issue has great info from Rob MacLeod on Diesel Fuel Additives as well as lots of updates on the racing world, a sneak peak of the Neptunus 62 launch and a look at the new Krates in Keswick. All that and more for you in this edition of Canadian Yachting Onboard.

St Barth Multihull

A Prime Spot for Multihulls at Les Voiles de St. Barth
