pirate Loadin' up the rum and untying the docklines...SOON

Hi Everyone,

My name is Amy and I am preparing to shove off the dock and follow my dream of sailing where ever the hell I want! I will be leaving this landlubber life behind in the next 2 yrs and want to be as fully prepared as possible (like one ever is ).

Today Georgian Bay, tomorrow the world!

Cheers,

Amy

Welcome aboard Amy. Here you will find a wealth of information and encouragement as well as widely differing opinions on the various aspects of the cruising life. Some go small, some go big but we all get cold, wet, tired and sunburned at times.

The dream used to be 10 years away..then 5, then 2...the house is sold and most of the "stuff"...I am now in a cottage next to the harbor where I keep my boat. Of course she needs lots of work still..but I am going this summer, the hell with it, if it is not just right..time waits for no man, or woman...go now, before it is too late, unless you want to play from the sidelines.

Aloha Amy...I think you are a fellow Canuck. Good luck on your plans.

Hi Amy

We have the same plan from, apparently, the same starting point. Any idea re your initial route? (ICW, St. Lawrence and hang a right, Hudson out at NYC etc...)

See you out on the Bay this summer.

Good Sailing!

We just knocked another year off our calendar as well. The time leading up to weighing anchor can go on forever. On the plus side if you still have an income you can put some nice things on your boat and save up for the trip.
