Chicago Boat Show
The Midwest’s only and the nation’s largest indoor all-sail boat show has become a must do event for all sailors. Chicago’s favorite boat show sails in to Navy Pier January 31-February 3, 2008 with more boats, more gear, more seminars and more fun than ever before. Celebrating 13 years at Chicago's famous Navy Pier, the 2008 show has promise to be unlike any other show in the US!
-The MYS Team will be at the show to assit our Gulf Coast Clients. Please contact us for VIP tickets.


TWO FEDERAL TAX DEDUCTIONS REMAIN FOR U.S. BOATERS When U.S.
Congress adjourned for 2007, they left in place two federal income tax deductions of potential benefit to boat owners. A boat is treated like a second home for federal tax purposes if it has a galley, a head, and sleeping berth. Mortgage interest paid on the loan is deductible from your federal income taxes. Taxpayers may use the mortgage interest deduction for one primary home and one second home and must itemize deductions on their returns.

Some boaters may be unaware of this potential tax benefit because not all lending institutions send borrowers an Internal Revenue Service form 1098 which reports the interest paid. Not receiving the form does not preclude taking the deduction. If a 1098 is not available, boaters should contact their lender for the amount of interest paid and should enter it on line 11 on Schedule A along with the lender’s tax ID number. If a form 1098 is sent, boaters should simply enter the amount on line 10 of Schedule A.

The other tax benefit is a deduction for state sales taxes. However, this may no longer be available after the 2007 tax year if Congress does not act to extend it. This deduction may be appropriate for boaters who paid substantial sales tax on the purchase of a new or used vessel last year. Boaters must choose either the state sales tax deduction or state income tax deduction on their federal tax return - you cannot take both. -- BoatU.S., read on:

Beneteau Sailboat News

Beneteau 40 Boat of the Year
By Mark Pillsbury
Beneteau 40: Good Value in a Versatile Cruiser
This clean and purposeful cruiser won Best Midsize Cruiser in CW's 2008 Boat of the Year contest. Comfortable and stylish belowdecks and well organized topsides, the Beneteau 40 showed light-air performance on the waters off Annapolis last fall that hinted at good handling in a stiffer breeze and convinced the BOTY judges that this boat was a standout among the Midsize Cruisers.

Bénéteau Group
Reports that first quarter financials for the 2007-08 year, which ended November 30, 2007, totaled €117,281,000 in their boat sales division, compared to €108,965,000 for the same period last year (1 euro = 1.47 US dollars). Bénéteau's total sales for the period, including sales from their mobile homes division, amounted to €165,915,000, a rise on €132,516,000 for the same period the previous year. First quarter sales growth for the company is reported as 25.20 per cent. Boat sales, the group's main business, are up 7.6 per cent, or 8.9 per cent on a constant exchange rate basis. -- IBI Magazine, http://www.ibinews.com/ibinews/newsdesk/20080009092746ibinews.htm

J/Boats Sailboat News

J/42 Completes Transat Passage
Returning from the latest family cruising excursions in Europe, Peter Willauher and crew officially went “Off Watch” upon arrival to Nelson’s Dockyard at English Harbor, Antigua… a relatively short 70nm sail from their destination of Nevis in the Caribbean. This passage which took place between Nov. 28 through Dec. 15th was a bit more challenging than most with high winds, high seas and excitement. The crew completed the 2,863 nm TransAtlantic crossing in just 16 days, 23hrs and 40min, averaging 7kts... which must be a new J/42 record… Peter & Carol Willauher’s J/42 Eight Bells has easily logged more ocean going miles than most J/s over the past 6 or 7 years with the boat serving as home away from home. Peter reflects on this most recent and memorable voyage. Learn more about Eight Bells at their site www.eightbells.org

Cruising J/46 to the Remote Arctic
Experienced offshore sailor Ned Cabot recently published a story of the latest adventure aboard his J/46 ‘Cielita’ in Ocean Navigator magazine (Jan/Feb ’08 issue). This is a must read for J/Cruising enthusiasts. Since 2003 Ned and some well seasoned crew mates have explored many areas in the northern latitudes visiting Labrador, Greenland, Scotland, Iceland, Ireland and most recently Norway, sailing through the Norwegian Sea and touching on the Arctic Ocean within 600nm of the North Pole... that’s about as far north as one can sail on earth! An abridged picture-less version of his 2007 cruise is available at Ocean Navigator Online here. To see some great pics, go out and get a copy of Ocean Navigator at the newsstand, it’s on page 32. Also there are some neat photos and more info on past voyages at the Cielita sailing blog.

Local News

Amateur boaters in New Orleans are praising the quick, bold work of three teen sailors, who helped rescue three chilled and exhausted people whose boat swamped in Lake Pontchartrain this month. Tom Long, a board member of the Southern Yacht Club, said the club hopes to gain national recognition for Chris Algero, 15, Clerc Cooper, 14, and Jon Nunn, 14, who were sailing a 19-foot Flying Scot sloop on the chilly afternoon of Jan. 13 when they saw a shallow-draft fishing boat swamp in heavy chop on Lake Pontchartrain. -- The Time-Picayune, complete story: http://tinyurl.com/3c4bba


The Tampa Bay area in Florida flexed its proverbial sailing muscle in 2007 as the locals had a banner year. Here is a partial list of some of their achievements:

* Ed Baird was the helm for the winning America's Cup team.
* Jeff Linton won the Lightning Class Worlds and Midwinters, Flying Scot North Americans and Midwinters, and the Moth Nationals and Midwinters.
* Ethan Bixby won the 505 North Americans and Midwinters, and the Windmill Nationals and Midwinters.

* Zach Railey won the US Olympic Finn class trials.
* Ben Barger won the Olympic Trials in the Windsurfer.
* Fred Strammer won the Flying Scott Midwinters and won the Lightning Junior Championship. -- St. Petersburg Times, complete story:
