Dear All,

I was looking for bareboat rental opptys on Lake Ontario and Google sent me here, where I'm glad to have landed.

I'm usually sailing in the Balearic Islands, or in Corsica, or in Brittany.

I'll navigate through the forum first, and then probably ask questions, if answers were not found.

I wish US members a peaceful Memorial Day

Jarno

Hey Jarno!

We are heading Corsica way.... whats the go with nice anchorages (for free) there? We just need a place where the wine is cheap, and there is a patisserie nestled between a Boulangerie and a Fromagerie!

Hi Mark,

Forget about anything cheap in Corsica, especially in summer.
You will find great moorings all along the western coast (the eastern is a waste of time anyway) but it's pretty crowded in August.
Harbors are full as well in summer, and harbor's personnel become really aggressive.

If you can, sail there in September.

Best

J

Thanks Boatman61, appreciated!
I won't be in Mallorca until August unfortunately.
Andratx is definitely a good choice
Have a safe way east.
