We see the future

Our resident clairvoyant Elissa the Amazing polished her crystal ball, tied on her babushka and assumed the lotus position. She peered deeply into the ball and looked out to the boating community. 'What the heck are they planning,' she pondered.

But static filled the glass. We need better input!

So now we call on you, the boaters, the cruise organizers, the regatta chairpersons, the operators of marinas. We have added our spanky new CYOB Calendar to keep the whole country up to date on important (and less important) events in the boating nation.

Listings are free of course- all you need do is contact us at We know it's winter, but everyone is making plans. Use the calendar to mark your winter speakers, radio courses, CPS seminars, junior fundraisers. Everything.

Elissa the Amazing may not be able to pick up your event via the spirit world, but once you send it in, she'll make darn sure it's entered in the CYOB Calendar. Send your dates right now and help a seer look into the future.
