If you enjoy our stories and you are like me, I always don’t have time to go back and check blogs for new stories and eventually forget about the site all together. Don’t let this happen to you, please take… Continue Reading →
We stumbled across this in the liquor store and had to try it out!
We find out why anchoring at Halfmoon Bay was difficult and then spend the day at Little Bluff Conservation Area. That afternoon we head home via the more protected northern route, Adolphus Reach.
Today we get to feel all posh by anchoring our sailboat out in front of a winery and taking our inflatable to shore to meet up with some friends.
I am here to publicly admit, I was wrong, Lori was right. As you can see from the picture above, I was overly optimistic that the storm we were heading towards would blow on by before we got there.
Just a random post of my favourite video from last year, when we could race. I really like the timing of the VHF announcement in this video. Wednesday was race night on Lake Ontario, near Cobour...
All of our kids are gone and we are now alone, drifting on our boat in the Thousand Islands. How are we going to get along?
Every year there’s always something that makes our plans more complex than they need to be. This year, we are changing our haul out location.
We just received the designs back from Precision Sails. We are super excited but have no idea what to look for in these sail designs. What do you think?
Meet out daughter, Bri. Her first trip on a sailboat was terrifying and she vowed never to go sailing again. Today we attempt to turn her into a sailor.
A quick review and information for the Gananoque marina. And then the story of our daughter and son-in-law joining us for the next part of our adventure.
Our friends suggested we explore the Wandering Channel just outside Gananoque and find a new spot to anchor. It was a bit of an adventure and we took one wrong turn.
We took a break and stayed in the same spot next to Huckleberry Island and explored the area by dinghy.
It only took us a few years to get back to the place that made us want to sail in the first place. We were so excited to be back! It’s beautiful.
It wasn’t a planned expense, but we are still running our original 30 year old sails that are still in decent shape but the sun damage has gotten to the point where they are just falling apart.
We continued our journey to the Thousand Islands. Today we learn what a “chicken jibe” is and hide out from the lightning next to the windmills.
Our plan is to take the outside route on Lake Ontario to get to Waupoos and anchor near Half Moon Bay. Our plan failed at the first step of waking up early.
Food has been provisioned, bags have been packed, the boat has been prepared (mostly). We head to the boat the night before to get settled in and prepare to leave early the next morning.
