Lake Ontario Meet 'n Greet Weekend

Just wondered how many members from here are on lake ontario, and if any were possibly interested in having a meetup some where and maybe doing a weekend or longer weekend sail together.
If there are a few that would be interested we could do a nice tour to a few places or possibly a raftup and chat on a weekend.
there could be a lot to do, maybe some form of teaching, training, tips, ideas.
Bill

Re: Lake Ontario Meet 'n Greet Weekend

Hi Bill-
Hoping to pick up new boat in Kingston before the end of May.
Will operate out between Rochester and Buffalo somewhere yet to be determined.
Possible meet-up would be nice at some point.
Kenny

Re: Lake Ontario Meet 'n Greet Weekend

sounds like a plan, if your single handing from kingston to home I can always buddy sail along with you across the lake and an overnite at main duck if winds are not cooperating, let me know closer to buy time.
If ya wanna hook up for coffee when your in town call me 613 929 9919 and if ya need anything while here I can help out.

Re: Lake Ontario Meet 'n Greet Weekend

Hey sounds like fun. Have any spots in mind? I can think of a couple depending upon what people have in mind, such as docking or anchoring, town or country. There are some lovely spots at this end of the lake. In fact knottygirl some of them are not too far away from you.

Re: Lake Ontario Meet 'n Greet Weekend

Lots of great anchoring spots in, or approaching the Thousand Islands - although depending upon the number of boats and the time of year, they can get very crowded. Knottygirl, you have a lot more faith in the people who may be lurking on this (or any) site than I would - perhaps you should seek the ability to modify your post and delete that phone number???? If you want to send it to someone, you are much better of doing so by PM.

Brad

Re: Lake Ontario Meet 'n Greet Weekend

Witchcraft i'd be open to any ideas, 1000 islands would be beautiful, theres along the north coast, the murry, we can do anchoring, docking as well, umm main duck is awsome as well, like i said open to ideas and places, Also it was great to chat with you and the help was appreciated very much. Will be back next week to pick up some more items for the boat as well. and Brad thanks for the heads up, its a cell phone and Im hoping that there are more friendlier people lurking here then bad peeps, so lets hope for better sialing, fair winds and great times.
Those that are interested and would like to start a small gathering a couple times during the summer season all the better. If not i'll be getting more practice on single handing and teaching my wife more as well.
Bill

Re: Lake Ontario Meet 'n Greet Weekend

I like main duck as well, but it is often crowded in high season. One cannot count on space. If you go there often enough you will have a tale of things less than desireable. There are some other cool spots as well.
Let me know what you want to organize...timing etc.., and lets try to organize something.

Re: Lake Ontario Meet 'n Greet Weekend

Depending on when and where, we could be interested.
Club cruising program is filling up but I don't expect to compete in the LO300 this year so that is a gap of a couple of weeks.

Re: Lake Ontario Meet 'n Greet Weekend

great, it would be nice to hook up and be able to puut a person to the MB. Were looking to do as many weekends as possible, and as wroks permits, so as we get closer I will start to put down some dates and possible trips were going to try for this summer, those that are or have an interest in also going the same direction post here, if you are planning your trips and would like to see who can also join up in your itinerary do so. this way there will be more options for all to choose from.
Thanks to all
Bill

Re: Lake Ontario Meet 'n Greet Weekend

Bill,
I cant even begin to plan a trip at this point. Given my current work schedules, my weekends will be different from most other peoples. We shall see how it all goes.

Re: Lake Ontario Meet 'n Greet Weekend

Nice life you lead! I've never done the Thousand Islands and am thinking about it this year as our son is nine and knows how to handle the tender.

I will keep myself posted on this thread as I like meeting "internet people in real life".

Re: Lake Ontario Meet 'n Greet Weekend

If you make to the Thousand Islands Alchemy you will enjoy yourself. July is extremly busy, so June or August is better, even better is September, but with kids might not be practicle.
Kiingston is a good hopping off place to the islands, good for a town night, especially if you choose to anchor in the river, ( through the bridge) or choose one of the two downtown marinas. You would be walking distance to supplies before hitting the first of the islands. Cedar island is an excellent place to watch the fireworks that happen twice a week from Old Fort Henry.
Look forward to hearing when you are headed this way.
