pirate New Canadian Sailors

Hello! We are so very new to the sailing world - our only experience is on a lake in the prairies of Canada! This past year has been one of growth and self discovery and we have both done an incredible amount of learning through everyone’s experiences here on the forums. We have been refitting our boat for a year and are excited to share more of our projects and progress, as I know a lot of the existing content has really helped us along the way and continues to help others every day! The community here is amazing and we are excited to be more involved as we put our boat back in the water this summer. We will learn to sail it and get comfortable before heading off on our adventure. We want to connect with anyone else in the community who likes to talk boats, travel, whatever - so reach out and say Hi! We’re still always learning, but always happy to help and share when we can. Thanks to everyone who has shared their projects and experience - google always leads me here to find the answer I’m after. Always.

Where are you going to drop her in the water? West coast or East?

Welcome aboard!
