Message From The Editor

You're invited

Here's what we have in mind. Canadian Yachting, the magazine, is your go to for authoritative writing, reviews, information and photos. CYOnboard is the spot where you can tell the country what you think from a boating perspective. We're all about the clubs, associations, and individual boaters who populate this water intensive land.

What's suitable? Your awards night, your engine workshop, your CPS instructor and how she helped you understand your nav instruments. Your club racing champion, your water levels, your new dock…well you decide. Boating how-to is also most welcome, so are recipes. And did I mention poetry? Sure why not? Cartoons too!

In summary CYOnboard is built to reflect the world and interests of Canada's boaters. CY, the magazine, is your armchair read, the publication you sit back and enjoy.

The next step is yours. What's happening on your boat? Please keep it short - a couple hundred words is fine.

You're invited. We mean it.
