Daryl began sailing with his family in Frenchman’s Bay back in 1975. Aboard a Northern 25 he would cruise with his family to Toronto Island and Ontario Place. His family decided to move to Lake Simcoe where he spent many summers as a kid travelling through the Trent Severn Waterway to experience Georgian Bay. Eventually the family boat was moved to Midland to enjoy these cruising grounds on a regular basis.
Daryl has always enjoyed learning how to make boats go faster. He purchased and began racing a Kirby 25. His passion grew as he learned from those around him while participating in events such as the Georgian Bay Regatta, Wiarton Regatta, Collingwood Cup, Detroit Bayview one design 36.7 and through weekly Wednesday night and weekend racing at the Midland Bay Sailing Club. His passion for one design racing developed from racing his Kirby. This led to a partnership on a Shark and further experience racing on Beneteau 36.7’s.
He completed his first Bayview Mackinac race in 2003 and was immediately hooked. Since then, he has participated in eleven more, with the majority of those in the Beneteau 36.7 one design fleet. Daryl is still an active racer competing yearly in the Bayview Mackinac and participating in weekly Wednesday night and weekend races at the Midland Bay Sailing Club. You will also find him cruising the Georgian Bay and North Channel every summer with his family aboard his C&C.
His passion for designs and experience with boats in both racing and cruising will be an asset to help him find the right boat for prospective buyers. Please feel free to contact him at email@example.com or (416) 720 5902.

Colin Andrews has been immersed in sailing and the world of boats since the age of 3 days when his parents put him aboard the boat and went cruising.
His passion for racing took him to the coasts of Canada and the USA, the Caribbean and elsewhere on boats large and small, typically as a helmsman and sail trimmer. He has owned several boats, primarily racers, but the last two boats have been dedicated more to cruising on Lake Ontario. Colin grew up at National Yacht Club and in the mid-90s moved to Ashbridge’s Bay YC where he and his spouse are very active members.
Colin has been successful in almost all aspects of boating; building Contessa 26 and 32 as summer jobs, sail making in both production and later as sales and service manager; wholesale distribution with a national organization, mast building and rigging, adult sailing instruction and, in the 21st century, yacht sales.
During a break from the boating business in the late ‘80s – 90s, Colin drove a successful turnaround for an office furniture manufacturer and was instrumental in opening the North American market for a small European R&D company with technology for destroying chemical weapons and other hazardous wastes.
In 2002 the boating business beckoned again and Colin has found success in serving the dreams and desires of hundreds of boaters, whether new to the sport or very experienced and whether looking for a new or a used boat. In 2019 Colin added yacht chartering to his portfolio as a natural complement to boat sales.
