Don't stow that Coppertone

Yeah yeah it’s been a weird summer but August and September are shaping up quite nicely. Next week CY’s team are writing like mad: our John Armstrong is going to Sturgeon Bay Wisconsin next Tuesday to sea trial a Cruisers Cantius 50 while Andy Adams is headed to Lake Simcoe to see the redevelopment at Jackson’s Point harbour, which should be impressive.

Chester Race Week, the 6M Worlds in Vancouver and CORK are all in the next few weeks. The Port Credit Boat Show starts on August 25. Plus, a lot of my dock mates are casting of for some late summer cruising.

Then, as soon as Labour Day comes into view it’s time to consider a winter charter (we are running our first charter adventure this issue to get you in the mood.) The fun never stops!!!!!!
