I'm sure all the Western members will be thinking of you and wishing you the best. Too bad one can't teleport a Mac

Well guy's theirs lots of time yet was hoping we could get a bunch more guy's & gals involved in this we moved it down from Meaford to Port Credit making it alot easier for u guy's down in the Fort Erie to Montreal stretch & New York is just accross the pond , Their will be an on the water boat show on the harbour side going on their that same wk-end so their may also be some deals to be had on marine equip.

Hope to see yer all their " Ya don't have to be bashfull "

I think Highlander might be looking for a cabin boy or two! :o

Phil, I'm not sure if anything was posted last year, I leave that to Beene or Highlander but I know there's a video of Beene flying the spinnaker with Highlander's bowsprit from a couple of years ago. (there may even be a mac having to be towed in one of the videos :| )

Some of those pics make me wish I was out sailing right now.
I think the best shot is the one with the tower in the background with the Mac in the foreground.
Also, some nice sunset shots.

Hi Guy's
Remember this is an open event all are welcome , the more boats the the merrier , also I can most likely crew three people for those who would like to come on down but cannot bring their own boats due to distance or what ever , Myself I would prefer a more experienced crew as I might take advantage of their skills & weather permitting & attemp to fly either two Spins @ once or four head sails r u up to the Challenge ! :P
I might be able to host two guy's overnight in the boat but I will give that opertunity to Bertrand "Q1" first he's got first dib's to the aft berth , their is motels walking distance for those looking for more comfort or with their admirals .
Not sure if beene or Rocky can Crew Also ?
So let the Drums Roll
Three boats & counting !

Are there any issues trailering a boat into Canada via Niagara Falls area? Mapquest says it's only 160 miles. :)

Also, what are the issues with having a porta-potti in Canadian waters? I can leave it home, or in the vee-hick-el, but if the admiral comes with, that's not going to fly. No permanent connection, nor deck pumpout, I'm afraid. :?
