Hello, time to post an introduction
. We have recently purchased a Bayfield29, and are very excited. We plan on sailing the North Channel of Lake Huron for a season or two, beginning next year(it's currently on the hard). After that, we plan on sailing it here to Amherstburg, ON and then enjoy the boat
and sailing much closer to home. My wife has just completed an introductory sailing course, and she has plans to take some further courses including navigation
this coming winter. This is a bit of a step for us, I have "captained" a 24 foot Limestone boat
out of Blind River, ON, and previously owned an 18 foot drop keel
day sailer. We are in the process of selling our motorcycles, and jumping into sailing with both feet<grin> If this all works out, and we enjoy this as much as we anticipate, then in a few years, just short of retirement
, we'll sell the Bayfield, move up to something larger and with more creature comforts, and prep it for a move south, hopefully as far as the Caribbean
, and maybe even further...who knows. Yes, a common dream, and we hope, an attainable one.
I guess that's us in a nutshell so to speak, we are looking forward to reading and learning
on this forum. Thanks for having us!
