Welcome

I assume you are from Nova Scotia. Mahone Bay is on my list of must-do cruising areas. I frequent the West Coast.

bn,
What a great time you will have. Just remember the learning curve for saing and packing food. Hopefully you will be nowhere near the Bay of Fundy. I could not imagine trying to sail on that bay.

Well you sure do catch on quickly. You sound like you have it figured out. It's mostly about showing up and doing it in the best way you can. We have lots of cold water sailors here.
