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 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.

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.
