Hi from The Thousand Islands

My wife and I , kids and grandkids race and cruise a Mirage 25 "Garfield" out of Brockville Yacht Club on the St. Lawrence River at the east end of The Thousand Islands.
We have cruised from Montreal to Sodus Bay NY on our boat and have sailed in Florida,the Carribean and the Adriatic.
I also do a little iceboating on a pond nearby when the conditions are right and I feel like dragging it out of the basement.

Greetings and welcome aboard the CF, Phil.

We sailed our Mirage 26 all over Lake Superiorior in the 80's. The M25 looks remarkably similar.

Yay! More Mirage folks.

Welcome aboard.

Connemara is a Mirage 27, which I sail out of Toronto Hydroplane and Sailing Club.
