I have spent most of my life around boats, canoes, runabouts, and have been sailing for 40-plus years. The early years were in racing boats, both dinghies and small-to-midsized keelboats.
For the last 8-10 years I have become a crusing sailor. I started sailing in a dinghy in the Midland area on Georgian Bay. Then I joined the Toronto Sailing & Canoe Club, then Queen City Yacht Club and raced on Lake Ontario.
