Canadian Yachting June 2015 - (Page 4)

VANTAGE POINT Introduce a Friend to Boating - Here's How So often we hear non-boaters say, "I would like to try that, or I wish that I had the chance to go boating" but it seldom goes any further. Make this year the year that grants them their wish. Introduce a friend to boating - here's how. Plan to attend an event, or create an activity that introduces your friend to boating. There are enjoyable boating activities happening all across our great country and sharing the pleasure of getting out in the boat, can be really memorable. The easiest introduction is to visit one of the antique and classic boat shows or the marine museums. In this June issue of Canadian Yachting, we have offered up a big pictorial feature (starting on page 34). There are interesting events for just about everybody. Another idea is to contact a marina or yacht club in your area and ask if they have an open house, or a new member introduction program. It may be of interest to you and your friend to go and learn more about what a nearby yacht club has to offer. To learn the skills that you, or your friends need to go boating, look to the Canadian Power and Sail Squadrons for courses and training. Just go online at www.cps - for all the information. For hands-on, on-the-water power boat driving and handling, there are schools in many areas across Canada. If sailing is what interests you or your friend, many yacht clubs have an Adult Learn To Sail program. That may be your best introduction into boating. Yacht clubs can be very friendly and collegial places and typically, the more involved you become, the more welcome you are! Some clubs even have a club keelboat that is dedicated to their Adult Learn To Sail program and upon graduation, the new member can have occasional use of the boat to themselves, or with their friends. There are some absolutely great deals out there. You just have to look around. Sail Canada, the organization that fields Canada's Olympic sailing team, is also Canada's on-the-water training organization and their courses are delivered through the Provincial Sailing Associations and in turn, through their member yacht clubs in every province. And yes, there are even clubs in Saskatchewan! The Sail Canada website lists all of the Provincial Sailing Associations. Go to Using Ontario as an example, "Get into Sailing" is a new initiative by Ontario Sailing and many of its 210 member clubs. Through free open houses and try-it events, kids and adults can see what sailing is all about for themselves. Attendees will be able to experience first-hand the joy of sailing as well as hear about the various benefits to becoming a member of the sailing community. Go to for information. This year, Canadian Yachting magazine is a participating sponsor of an event called Summer Sailstice. This is a worldwide celebration of sailing on the weekend closest to the summer solstice - this year the solstice falls on Saturday, June 20, 2015. It's designed to celebrate sailing and through their website, you can find an event near you, or be the spark and organize an event yourself. You can win prizes by entering one of their drawings. Add your sailing plans and you could win a Caribbean charter or any of dozens of other prizes! It's pretty cool. But is boating! Here's wishing you a great summer and loads of fun sharing your love of boating with a friend! * June 2015 PUBLISHER Greg Nicoll 877-620-9373 * MANAGING EDITOR Andy Adams 416-574-7313 * ONLINE EDITOR Terri Hodgson 705-527-7666 * TRAVEL EDITOR Elizabeth Kerr 416-258-9948 * ART DIRECTOR Allan Bates 416-485-9229 * PRODUCTION MANAGER Lynn Lortie 705-527-7666 * WEBMASTER Rory Green CONTRIBUTORS Andy Adams, John Armstrong, Robin Ball, Simon Hill, Terri Hodgson, Lisa Mavrou, John Morris, Greg Nicoll and Katherine Stone ADVERTISING Mark Collett 604-351-0211 * John Armstrong 289-962-1310 * Jim Negen 320-281-7454 * 855-484-7200 * Ian Gilson 905-719-5152 * Mary Nicoll 905-535-2866 * Lynn Lortie 705-527-9873 * PRINT PRODUCTION Eileen Walsh 705-527-7666 * CIRCULATION Elissa Campbell 705-527-7666 * ACCOUNTING Michelle McKerness 705-527-7666 * Canadian Yachting is published by ADASTRA MEDIA INC in association with KERRWIL PUBLICATIONS LIMITED.
