Great Lakes Sailors

Hi to everyone on the forum. My partner Natasha and I sail Lake Ontario but hope to see more of the world in future years. Love the site. Great inspiration. We sail out of Hamilton Harbour and it would be great to connect with others in our area.

Today, I would characterize the Great Lakes as "poor ice fishing".

Lots of good sailing though when the ice fishing slacks off a little bit more. I'm sure you are all waiting for spring. Even this far south we have winterized.

Hi CloseReach and Natasha

We're neighbours! The Admiral (Maureen) and I live in Dundas. The boat, however, is in Georgian Bay (Well, not at the moment). I'm certain that we have mutual acquaintances. Which marina are you out of?
