New Member - No boat yet still dreaming

Hi everyone

Still dreaming about the cruising life at this point . No boat, but have obtained CYA certification and getting sailing experience by crewing every week during the summer at a local yacht club as well as racing in the Ontario 300. My wife and I did bareboat in the BVI for the 1st time last march and we really enjoyed it. Plan is retire within 10 years splitting our time cruising Florida/caribbean and home ( Toronto ).

Looking forward to participating in this forum

Northbreeze

local clubs from hog town

I sail out of the Whitby Yacht Club.

I see you're from Thunder Bay. I was there many moons ago visiting a friend who went to lakehead U.

Thanks for the welcome !
