After going on a big sailing adventure with a friend on his boat, and catching the sailing bug, I decided to get my own sailboat and have some more fun. The desire to continue sailing was still very strong. I plan to continue sailing with my partner Lori, her daughter Jane, and friends.

It's still winter but looking forward to sailing soon
Ours is the one with the gray cover stuck behind the two pontoon boats
It has been a rough winter for most everyone in the country but look like we might get above freezing here in the coming days. I have been getting ready to start working on the boat again my list is a lot shorter this year. There are some repairs that need to be done. I need to finish redoing the rest of the woodwork. Plus I have a couple of upgrades to do. Windmill Marina is trying to clear space so I can get to the boat, it has another boat in front of it and 3' of snow. I also found a shop I can work on the boat inside and heated, close to home. If all goes well I will start working mid march on the boat. We should be ready to get in the water before the ice goes out. Last year was the end of April, my guess it will be into May some time. We are looking into a number of sailing trips this year and hope to have them set in the coming months.
