Port Captain Introductions: Dave & Kathy Spencer

Cindy - December 7, 2016

London is a landlocked city in southwestern Ontario that Dave and Kathy Spencer have called home for most of their lives. Despite the absence of navigable water in London, Dave has spent most of his life sailing dinghies and runabouts thanks to a family cottage on the Trent Severn Waterway. Dave and Kathy didn’t get into the joys of cruising until 2005 when they bought a good old CS27. They got hooked while cruising from Bayfield, Ont. up to Georgian Bay’s North Channel and back several times. Since then, they have graduated to their beloved Catalina 34, Good Idea, and have moved their home port to Lion’s Head to enjoy its proximity to the North Channel and the wonderful anchorages on Georgian Bay within a couple of hours sail of Lion’s Head — perfect for a weekend getaway.
