A few words about myself seem in order here. I am male, 69 yrs. of age (an old fart). Born in England
, served in the Royal Navy
for 7 years. Had trouble settling down on being demobbed so joined a friend in the same situation and took his father's boat
from Falmouth to the West Indies and back via Bermuda
for a year. Got married and emigrated to Canada
, currently live in Toronto until 'er at work
retires next month then we plan on moving to a small place called Goderich on Lake Huron. We currently own a Hughes
, not fast by any means but very comfortable and easy to handle on the Great Lakes
. Most sailing to date has been on Lake Ontario
, but with the move next year we plan to sail to Goderich via the Welland Canal
, Lake Erie and into Lake Huron. Then we shall be sailing in Georgian Bay and I hope to cover all the Great Lakes
before I have to hang up my sea-boots. Have been lurking for a while before deciding to leap into the fray.
Cheers to all.
