Re: Dreaming of the day

Welcome lynnross. We begin our journey from the far western edge of the Great Lakes this summer. If our plans don't change we'll be heading down the St. Lawrence and be in your neck of the woods in 2015. If money, will, and desire remain, we'd like to spend a year or so exploring the Maritimes and perhaps NFLD. After that it's south to the Bahamas.

So perhaps we'll cross wakes .

Re: Dreaming of the day

Aloha and welcom aboard!
I have some experience with our club's two International Folkboats which I'm certain would have the same sailing characteristics. Great sailing craft but a little cramped for space.
kind regards,
