Visit Prince Edward Island, and Celebrate Canada's
Birthday Where It All Began
You won't want to miss the 2017 Conference and AGM in Prince
Edward Island. Boaters and volunteer leaders from across Canada
will gather to attend workshops, have their say in the business of
the national organization, network with friends and future friends,
celebrate our achievements and, of course, have some fun. We
are looking forward to welcoming you and showcasing PEI's famous hospitality to boaters from across Canada.
This year's conference will be held on the Charlottetown Waterfront at the Delta Prince Edward which offers an effortless blend of
sophistication and convenience. Featuring an unbeatable downtown location in the "Cradle of Confederation", the hotel offers a
vast assortment of quality amenities. There are 201 guest rooms,
each boasting views of the city or the breath taking views of the
Charlottetown Harbour. Looking out past the water, red cliffs supporting lighthouses on the edges surround you. From the deck of
the hotel, three separate lighthouses are visible with others just
around the corner. To reserve your room at the Delta Prince Edward for $169 per night call: (888) 263-2427.
Prince Edward Island is a glowing gem of rich green pastures
and brilliant red cliffs; an island province surrounded by salty
ocean waters and sized just right for touring. The gentle landscape
reminds you to slow down and enjoy the peace and beauty of the
moment. As you wander country roads you will discover manicured
farmsteads, historic lighthouses perched on cliffs, quaint fishing villages and rippling sand dunes shifting in the breeze.
Catch your breath after a hectic summer, and try not to think
about the demands of winter. You'll find the perfect calm between
the storms on Prince Edward Island. The air and sun are still warm,
the beaches are serene and unoccupied. The trees are transforming into a glorious quilt of colour, and on tables, porches, and
picnic blankets across our province, the bountiful harvest of the
growing season waits to be savoured.

THE PORT HOLE

Our conference theme is the "Cradle of Canada"
150 years ago, a small group of elected officials arrived by boat in
Charlottetown. They were meeting to discuss the possibility of uniting three Maritime jurisdictions, but representatives also appeared
at the conference to raise a broader issue, and sow the seed of
a concept to establish a larger union and create a country. This
historic event of 1864 led to the founding of Canada.
The Island is also known as "Abegweit" the Mi'kmaq word, often
interpreted as "land cradled on the waves."

We invite you to become a time traveller as you step back into 1864
and relive the exciting events that led to the creation of this great nation.
You'll learn about the history of the Island and the history of Canada.
What does fall taste like?
Take the freshest ingredients, plucked from our fertile soil or fished
from our sparkling seas. Rush them to local restaurants, markets,
and vendors. Get them into the hands of skilled food artists, many
trained at the Culinary Institute of Canada right here in Charlottetown. Prepare them perfectly. Serve them with style, and a smile.
Prince Edward Island is Canada's smallest province, but the rich
soil and pristine waters produce a huge abundance of culinary
treasures. In fact, the modest size helps to harvest local ingredients
from traditional family farms, fishers, and artisanal producers, and
deliver them quickly to a wide variety of markets and restaurants.
The result is a food lover's paradise. And that's appropriate, because going back to our earliest settlers, Islanders have always
gathered in the kitchen to share stories and songs over a fresh
and delicious home-cooked meal. So whether you're preparing
your own masterpiece or relying on the talents of our prize-winning
chefs, arrive hungry and you're sure to leave happy.
You may think of PEI as a summer destination
Fall is surprisingly busy, with concerts, ceilidhs, kitchen parties, and
country music jams all over the Island. Community plays and dinner theatre. Fiddlers and step dancers.
Take your fall outdoors
Stay inside and you can certainly have a wonderful time, but fall
on Prince Edward Island seems to beckon us outdoors. It's beautiful on the Island in fall. The gentle blue sky, the deep blue ocean,
the rolling green hills dotted with autumn's changes. Take a walk
on one of our many uncrowded beaches. Cycle the roadways or
explore our trails. Ever tried kayaking? Canoeing? How about
geocaching? Climb a lighthouse. Explore sandstone cliffs, where
the land meets the sea. Go birdwatching and see how many of
our over 330 species you can spot. Explore the magical woods at
Green Gables. Golf one of more than 30 courses, ranging from
family friendly to legend killer. These are just a few of the reasons
to take your fall outdoors, on Prince Edward Island.

Vantage Point: A “Flare” for Safety
Club Profile: Sidney North Saanich Yacht Club
Pacific Northwest Classic: Southern Straits Race - For the last 49 years, the West Vancouver Yacht Club has proudly hosted the Annual Southern Straits Race. Known for offering challenging conditions, this Pacific Northwest classic is a proud qualifying event for both the VanIsle 360 and Vic-Maui Yacht Race. This year, Canadian Yachting magazine’s Bob Nicoll sailed on one of the 82 boats that competed. By Bob Nicoll
Canadian Boatbuilder Profile: Modernizing Tradition at Rossiter Boats - The history of Rossiter Boats is one that combines passion, fostering of tradition, and an eye towards the future. It all started 40 years ago with 19-year-old George Rossiter repairing the wooden canoe of a fellow cottager on Go Home Bay. Now Rossiter is perhaps Canada’s fastest-growing boatbuilder. By Kate Fincham
Cruising Technology: Staying Connected - Your summer cruise may be a vacation, but a pretty sizeable percentage of boat owners do want to keep in contact, whether for business or family reasons. In the not too distant past it was a big deal to clear your responsibilities and be able to take off for even a few weeks. However, connectivity for the average boater is improving and within the financial reach of most. By Glen Cairns
