Everything Cool For Women Who Boat

For the past 25 years, I have been cruising the Pacific Northwest in my powerboat, "As You Wish". My backyard is Howe Sound but I also enjoy the Gulf Islands and the odd trip to Desolation - Princess Louisa is one of my favourite places on earth. I spend most of my time at anchor or a club outstation.

I love a good dock party or a side-tie in a remote anchorage and live for flavourful snacks, fun cocktails, a stack of magazines and a healthy dose of dock talk.

I am a shopper and love cool products that actually work. My friends and I spend countless hours floating, sipping beverages and talking about what works and what doesn't. We didn't invent any of this stuff but we sure like to think we did.
