The Heat is On

The CY Onboard staff have been busy as the boating community enters into the real heat of the summer across Canada. CY's John Armstrong spent some time on a sea trail of a new Jeanneau Leader 40 and we captured a few snapshots of his visit. You can look forward to the full review in an upcoming issue of CY magazine. The Canadian Sailing community lost a legend this month with the passing of Steve Tupper. Read John Kerr's remembrance of Steve and his contribution to the sailing community. Our staff took to the water this past weekend to offer a royal send off to Lynn and Pat Lortie, who left on a three year crusing adventure. Watch the brief video and then keep an eye on your Onboard newsletters as we follow them on their travels. There is too much to mention here so please dig in to this issue of Onboard and send us your thoughts by email or on Twitter anytime.
