Canadian Who is South Bound?

I'm a journalist urgently seeking interviews with Canadians who winter in the Sunbelt, especially Florida. Hopefully you're there already or have been there before because I need to know what you like about the area ashore and afloat. This is an upbeat story altho I can also listen to gripes, problems and solutions. I'll also need a photo. This is for a publication read by Canadian retirees.

While we are not retired, we were lucky enough to be able to take the boat South to Florida a couple of years ago. We plan to do it again in 2011. What would you like to know?

Check out Zenith catamaran blog byNicole Blanchard and Yvon Chiasson
Longueuil, Québec, Canada
Longueuil, Quebec, Canada:

Zenith Blog Google Translate

They planned retirement and started their dream by buying a Lagoon 35 catamaran in Connecticut, sailing for three years on Lake Champlain, and after retirement sailed down to Florida and to the Bahamas in 2008-2009. They left the boat in FL for the summer of 2009 and returned to Quebec. In 2009-2010 they cruised the Florida Keys first and then went to the Bahamas

They have contact information on their blog.

They are actually considering selling Zenith and purchasing a canal boat in Europe and spending the next two years on the canals and rivers of Europe.
