Can I ship a large yacht between North American East and West coasts?
Wondering if you can ship a large yacht between North American East and West coasts? Eg, Vancouver to Florida, Toronto to Vancouver?
The answer is a resounding YES!
With representation on the Great Lakes and West coast, we are ready to help send your next yacht where you want to use it.
Most vessels over forty feet or so are difficult to ship over land, often requiring dissassembly of flybridge / arches. If the vessel is small enough to ship over land, an approximate cost of $15,000 can be expected depending on the shipper.
We have worked with many trucking companies, and can help to arrange quotes. For obvious reasons, when choosing a company to handle the move, cheaper is not always better. Some important factors to consider are their experience with moving boats, proper insurance, and client satisfaction (do they generally meet schedule commitments, etc).
When moving over land becomes too difficult (or impossible), the best
option is typically a company like Seven Star Yacht Transport http://www.sevenstar-yacht-transport.com/.
This service puts your yacht on a large ocean-going ship, and unloads it
in the port of your choice. Some benefits of the service include: less
wear and tear on engines and vessel when compared to delivery under own
power, float up/float off service using the ship’s onboard cranes.

Man sails the world with pet chicken
Not many can say they've sailed around the world, but even less can say
they did it with a chicken? 24 year old Soudée has been sailing the
world the last 2 years with his pet Chicken, Monique! The sailor says
he'd always wanted a companion for his journey and originally thought
about bringing a cat, before deciding it would be too much work to look
after on a boat. Upon meeting Monique, Soudée realized a hen was the

Man rescued via helicopter from middle of the North Atlantic Ocean
A crew member competing in the Clipper Round the World Yacht Race has
been successfully rescued by helicopter off a vessel in the North
Atlantic Ocean, with the help of PRAXES Medical Group and
ClipperTelemed+, and the Department of National Defences Joint Rescue
Coordination Centre. On Thursday June 23rd, 62 year old British sailor
Chris Drummond, reported severe chest pains. After a thorough
examination by the medical team on board, it was decided necessary that
a medical evacuation take place.
The primary rescue plan had to be abandoned due to the prevailing weather conditions, and the secondary plan was implemented. Two helicopter crew from the Canadian Department of National Defence’s Search and Rescue team lowered on to help winch Chris off into the Rescue 913 helicopter early morning on Friday, June 24. Drummond was then transferred to Queen Elizabeth II hospital in Halifax where he is undergoing tests and receiving the necessary care that he requires.
The crew, and the eleven other competing teams are now on their final leg of the 40,000 nautical mile journey which concludes in London on Saturday 30 July.

Sail Georgian Bay will be officially running this week in Meaford
Harbour. The popular sailing school is offering lessons in July and
August for both adults and children. The school now has a 24-foot
keelboat to be used for adult lessons.
“We’re going to do all the theory online and the practical will be done on the water with four sessions lasting three hours each,” said sailing coach Jean-loup Dalle. “It’s interesting to see how many people want to learn and go sailing. There is a lot of enthusiasm.”
The school will also continue to offer its various youth programs throughout the summer.
“I love our young instructors. They are passionate about sailing,” said Dalle.
The local area is forecasted to have a warm summer and Dalle said sailing conditions will be great.
“I’ve been sailing all my life and have been all over the world,” he
said. “If you ask me, where the best cruising is – it’s right here. This
is the best.”
