Sailboat Adventures

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.

Canada Day in Cobourg

You know Canada day is approaching when you start getting calls from the marina confirming if you will be around or not. And like all previous years it was another great weekend to be in Cobourg. Despite all my grumblings… Continue Reading →

We lost our anchor

It was a rough day, and we now know what it sounds like when your anchor rapidly descends from the bow of your boat.

Port Whitby Marina to Toronto Island

Day 2 of our trip to Toronto Island, we leave Port Whitby Marina and head into the inside harbour for the first time. Yes, we were nervous.

Cobourg to Port Whitby Marina

Day 1 of our trip to Toronto Island takes us from Cobourg to Port Whitby Marina on a beautiful sailing day and Lori begins her sailboat racing career.

Thousand Islands Aug 2018 Summary

A summary of our 2018 Thousand Islands trip.

Heading home

The weather finally improved enough for us to leave Kingston and continue our journey home. It took most of the day to get to Trenton marina. Next morning we took the Murray Canal and arrived home in Cobourg late that… Continue Reading →

Stuck in Kingston

With heavy winds and nasty weather continuing to hit us we decided to stay another day in Kingston.

Leaving Thousand Islands Early

After just arriving in the Thousand Islands, we had to head home early.

Kingston to Leek (Thawartway) Island

We made it to the Thousand Islands! We left Navy Bay in Kingston and made our first stop at Thwartaway Island, also known as Leek Island.

Waupoos to Kingston

We have a less than stellar launch from Waupoos and accidentally drop our genoa. The rest of the trip was beautiful and we find a perfect anchor spot in Navy Bay.

Waupoos Marina

We leave Half Moon Bay and motor 45 minutes into Waupoos Marina where we unexpectedly bump into our sailing instructor.

Cobourg to Waupoos

This is our first real trip on our new sailboat. We planned on hugging the shoreline and making the decision to take the outside or inside route once we were close to Presqu’ile. Our final destination is to anchor in… Continue Reading →

Bluffers Park to Cobourg

Today is the day we get to take our new baby home. We convinced our friends who own a CS40 to join us for this trip since we had no idea what we were doing. This is our first real… Continue Reading →

CS34 Launch

Today is launch day! We are so excited and extremely nervous at the same time! It’s been crazy getting to this day and lots to learn and logistics to figure out. Launch is scheduled for 11am today. Borrowed my brother… Continue Reading →

Criss Cross – New Owners

With mixed emotions, we have sold out boat! Sad to see her go, but her new owners, Mariana and Juan, are going to be amazing and we know they will take great care of her!

CFB Trenton Marina to Presqui’le and then home

We headed back towards Presqui’le and made the journey back through Murray Canal without incident. OK… maybe one incident, we had to wait this time for one of the bridges to open. And I was in the situation where the… Continue Reading →
