Sortie en Mer (A Trip Out to Sea)

This interactive simulator by Guy Cotten, a French company specializing in rugged outdoor attire and safety gear, will give you chills. I don’t want to ruin it for you, but the entire experience is about five minutes long. Provided you can survive for that long of course.

Whatever you do on the water this year, please remember to wear your life jacket.

New Canadian Boating Regulations Effective April 15th!

First, let me assure you that if you have already completed your boaters exam and have your card- nothing changes for you, the card is “good for life.” If you have not yet completed your boaters exam you can complete it under the current rules and regulations up until midnight on the 15th. Use the promo code at the end of this post to save $10.

There are a number of new rules and regulations that are coming in to effect, the biggest being that boaters of any age operating any kind of motorized pleasure craft will be required to hold a valid license (even a canoe with an electric motor). In order to acquire a boating license all candidates must first past a mandatory 5 chapter online course and receive a minimum grade of 80% on each quiz at the end of each chapter. Once completed, they must also pass the open book online test comprised of 50 questions and receive a minimum grade of 75%.

See the official post from for the full details.
