Re: 2019 Pacific Northwest Freedom rendezvous

Sorry I got notice that my marina was being renovated and my berth was vanishing and this went right out of my head. With finding a new home for the boat on top of building a new house and moving this year it's all been a bit time consuming. Let me know if anyone has organized something or there's a...

Re: 2018 Pacific Northwest Freedom rendezvous

Thanks to everyone who attended the rendezvous over the weekend. Great time had by all I hope. We'll have to do it again. If your boat isn't in the photo sorry you moored on the wrong side. :)

Re: 2018 Pacific Northwest Freedom rendezvous

I don't think everyone is leaving on Sunday. Doubt if many will leave before 12 but you're welcome to look in. Check with us Saturday and we might know by then if it's worth your while.

2018 Pacific Northwest Freedom rendezvous

Are we up for a rendezvous this year? Any requests for a favorite location that suits everyone? Friday Harbor? Anacortes? Pender Island? Thetis Island? Sometime or around July or August? Give me some feedback and I'll be happy to coordinate bookings. Just need numbers and dates that work for everyone.

Re: Sailing in the St Lawrence

Thanks Geoff. Photos were interesting. Good to see you got to Montreal with the mast still stepped. A move to Montreal is making me need to decide whether to sell up in BC or take the boat round to Montreal but I'm not sure what sailing is available to us there.

Sailing in the St Lawrence

Just asking if anyone out East has experience of sailing down the St Lawrence as far as Montreal. I'm not having much luck finding pilot books covering the area so I was wondering if it was somewhere best avoided by 32ft sailboats. Any experiences shared would be grateful received. Thanks.
