Hi - it's Barry from the Shuswap in Canada

My wife Karen and I are new sailors. We took a 4 day CanSail course last summer on dinghy's. In june of this year we bought a 1977 San Juan 21. We have been out quite a few times on our local lakes and overnighted once. We also Spent a day on the ocean with Cooper Boating in Vancouver sailing a Catalina 27 in English Bay. Looking forward to learning and sharing with everyone. Anyone else have a San Juan 21?

Re: Hi - it's Barry from the Shuswap in Canada

G'Day Barry and Karen,

Welcome to CF. You will find lots of folks in similar situations to commiserate with, and lots of others with a good many sea miles and years on board to help with the problems that you will someday face. Lots of good info, a fair amount of BS... after a while it will become easy to tell them apart!

Enjoy your SJ!

Jim

G'day Jim! I got my first real taste of sailing in the Coral Sea off Townsville. I was visiting friends their for 6 weeks and spent 3 wonderful Wednesday evenings crewing for whomever would take me for the weekly Townsville Yacht Club race. Never forget being passed on the first marker by the Australian America's Cup yacht.

Re: Hi - it's Barry from the Shuswap in Canada

Aloha and welcome aboard!
I don't have a San Juan 21 but started on a Catalina 22 back in the old days. I swear I got underway more often on that Catalina than I have with the larger boats. I spend more days at sea with the big boats but the small ones are great learning platforms.

Welcome fellow Canuck.

One of the largest fleets of San Juan 21's is in Calgary at the Glenmore Sailing Cub.

Re: Hi - it's Barry from the Shuswap in Canada

Many fine memories of Lake Shuswap in my youth. The family sortied up from Seattle in the summers of 1967 and 1968. 67' Chrysler station wagon towing an 18' Bill Garden June Bug schooner, an el Toro dingy and my Hydroplane! We camped at the bar in the "H" of the lake and had a great time boating and swimming and playing with our two Beagles. The dogs would not stay out of the garbage pit and were intercepted while trying to harass a bear. In the interest of their safety I put them in my hydro and marooned them on a little island just off the beach. The howling was pitiful but they stayed out there till the bear was done with her business. What does a bear do? Whatever the heck she wants. Way too much fun. Welcome to CF.
