Message From The Editor

Pick your pleasure

Two very different events capture our pages this time. The America's Cup is now underway in Bermuda with much ballyhoo and some very high speeds. Last week I asked how you feel about that, which brought a lot of pro and con to our CYOB Inbox. Very outspoken you are.

As well, the Race to Alaska arrives in Victoria today. Two events more different than AC and R2AK are hard to imagine but both are sailing, both adventures. It's a sport with a lot of diversity.

Among other things in this packed issue we begin a look at 150 Years of Boating in Canada. This time, part one of four that are our salute to the national anniversary. Let us know which you choose.
