Hello from Nova Scotia

Hello to all,
This is my first post on this forum also. We live on the Cabot Trail just above the Englishtown ferry. Sail the Bras d'Or and surrounding ocean on a 32' Lyle Hess wooden cutter. We are moored in Baddeck in the summer and Dundee (in water) in the winter. Would love to meet cruisers coming to the lake or to the trail.

Hello, Iolaire and welcome to Cruisers Forum! I'd love to see some photos of your boat, if you have them.

(p.s. I moved your post to it's own thread so it wouldn't get lost)

Thanks for welcome, and here are a few pictures of Iolaire. Would love to see others from the forum in Cape Breton.
Steve

Now that's a Proper Boat!

Friends who've cruised Nova Scotia have raved about the beautiful scenery and friendly, welcoming people there. I've always wanted to sail to N.S., but the Admiral has vetoed the trip. She prefers warm water.

Steve, Welcome She's a beautiful S/V. We motorcycled around the Cabot Trail a few years back. Beautiful does not describe the scenery. We wore long johns and heavy coats in June so I doubt I'll ever boat in the area.

Steve,
That's a beautiful boat. Plan to head your way sometime in the near future. Probably next summer. We'll watch for you.

Aloha Steve,
Welcome aboard! Great boat. When you mentioned Iolaire I thought of Don Streets old boat.
Kind regards,
JohnL

Indeed, and many an hour I have enjoyed his books and videos. When I became a Canadian citizen I had to change the documentation from US to Canada and couldn't keep her same name as it was already taken here. So being in a very Gaelic community here we searched for Gaelic words and came up with Iolaire which is "eagle" in Gaelic. It was available and we took it. We have eagles flying along the cliff below the house every day so felt it was appropriate. Thanks for the compliment.
