Dream Boat

If you are feeling a bit cold, in need of some warmth and excitement, a change of venue, a little escapism, then perhaps you should pick up a copy of the current issue of Canadian Yachting.

This issue is bright, warm and vibrant, and promises many benefits.

Good use of the upper right-hand corner to push Top 17 Sailboats.  The cover takes advantage of the left hand side of the cover for sell lines to be seen on crowded stands.  The use of colour to help the eye travel down the page works well too.
