adventures aboard our CS34 sailboat

Category Sailboat Adventures

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?

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.

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 →

We are heading out today!

Finally, after several years of trying to get back to the Thousand Islands we are heading out today!

Bowmanville to Cobourg

Today is the day we bring Foggy back home to Cobourg Marina! Weather forecast was good, warm, sunny and a little bit of wind from the South moving to the East in late afternoon.

Vacation has been approved!

Looks like Foggy’s going in the water! Launch date June 29th! See you on the lake! And a real Thousand Island trip in late July! So excited!

Cobourg 2019 Racing Season

I was invited out to race this season, every Wednesday night on a 28 foot Laser keel boat. Yes, Laser built a keel boat! And am I’m slowly making my way up the sailing crew ranks from my rail meat… Continue Reading →

Cobourg to Wiggers Custom Yachts

It was that sad time of the year when we needed to take the boat out of the water. We left it late and were unsure what the weather would be for the sail to Wiggers for lift out.

Three days with Grumpy Gramps

We decided to take the in-laws out for a three day trip to the Bay of Quinte. It was a two boat trip. With four in Grumpy’s boat, Mis Led, a 27 foot Carver powerboat. Lori and myself were responsible… Continue Reading →

Beautiful sunset anchored off Cobourg Beach

We invited a few friends out for a night on the boat. There wasn’t enough wind for a sail so we motored out in front of Cobourg Beach, dropped our anchor, and enjoyed the evening.

Anniversary trip to Trenton

For our wedding anniversary, Lori and I left the kids behind and spent a few days on the boat by ourselves. We decided to head up to Trenton for dinner and stayed at our favourite marina, the Trent Port Marina.
