Far from an ocean!

Hello everyone,

I am brand new to this forum and live in Sask, Canada. That puts me 1700km from the closest ocean, but I used to enjoy sail boarding on calm lakes.
My history is in electronics but always enjoy fixing all kinds of things, from laser systems to hovercraft. Boats are in the middle somewhere.

I hope to learn more from you all, and perhaps find some answers to specific questions as well.

Re: Far from an ocean!

Welcome to the forum Simon. I wasn't much closer than you! I'm from edmonton alberta. We lake(slough) sailed there until we moved aboard in lake ontario and followed the geese south last year.
You do have some beautiful lakes there in sask, enjoy them!
We have met quite a few tech and IT people aboard. It seems to go well with cruising.

Re: Far from an ocean!

Greetings and welcome aboard the CF, Simon.

It’s not that bad.
It’s only 1,140 km (708.58 miles) from Regina, for instance, to Churchill.
