adventures aboard our CS34 sailboat

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 →

Sticky post

Lake of Bays Brewery – Foghorn

We stumbled across this in the liquor store and had to try it out!

Little Bluff Park and Lost in the Dark

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.

Waupoos Estates Winery

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’m no longer allowed to make judgment calls about weather

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.

Windless Wednesday

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...

On our own in the Thousand Islands

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?

Sailboat Haul Out Plan for 2020

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.

Sail Designs from Precision Sails

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?

Anchored at Sugar Island

This is one of our favourite spots to anchor, mostly because of the lovely people that were there the first time we tried to anchor. This time the island was empty due to COVID but it was great to be… Continue Reading →

Creating a New Sailor

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.

Gananoque Marina

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.

Exploring the Wandering Channel

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.

Exploring Gananoque and Leek Island

We took a break and stayed in the same spot next to Huckleberry Island and explored the area by dinghy.

We made it to the Thousand Islands

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.

Measuring our boat for new Precision Sails

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.

Waupoos to Kerr Bay – Chicken Jibe

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.

Cobourg to Waupoos 2020

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.

Preparing for our trip

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.

Foggy Friend Video: CS34 Shakedown

One of our Foggy Friends recently bought their own CS34 and just published this great YouTube video of their new boat. It’s great to see other CS34 boats, they are all very similar but have their slight differences. From what… Continue Reading →
