Hi Folks
My wife and I sail Equinox out of Rockland Maine. We have been sailing since 1992 and have been as far north as the Gaspe and as far south as Trinidad. Equinox our Westerly Corsair 36, currently sits in our yard in 1.5 feet of snow as we prepare her for some more cruising.

Welcome Dick ...and I agree with Mark......everyone should stay away from Maine, it's like Hotel California :-0

Thanks for the welcome. You all seem to be in warm places. It was 20 degrees here this morning that's -6 degrees Celsius. If you ever come to Maine now is not the time. Our sailing season runs June to October.

Aloha Dick,
It got down to 54F the other morning and I thought I was going to freeze to death. Had to put on a sweatshirt. BRRRR!
Welcome aboard! Good to have you here. I got up to Acadia NP once and really enjoyed it.
Kind regards,
JohnL

Hello Dick,

Just couldnt resist looking you up. I was thinking you were registered here and your my first cruisersforum neighbour. Kind of cheesy right? Maybe see you later. Im the boat anchored next to you, a bit more to the shoal and rocky part.
