    Girl with patreon account goes sailing in hot place

    Actually, if you go back in their stuff a few years they did do the Rhone downhill, I believe when they brought Magic Carpet down from Switzerland to the Med. Their channel is one of two I have ever expected money on (yours is the other).

    So kayaks are really quiet...... a couple of packets of sugar from the donut shop in the tank of the gen-set on the swim platform should alleviation the problem....

    So Dylan, when you finish with the Chesapeake you have to come check out Lake Superior.... just snapped this picture of Pic Island fine on our port bow this morning, unfortunately not a breath of wind, but 5he scenery is lovely (like Scotland without the whiskey).

    Lake Ontario Anarchy

    So there was some guy from Ontario Sailing on CBC this morning and he was implying that clubs were cancelling racing and regattas. Does anyone have any clear news on this? I know QCYC starts their season this morning (in spite of much of the land base being under water), what about ABYC Open...

    Respect for the Fitzgerald

    You got your Canadians mixed up. Leonard Cohen has passed. Gordon Lightfoot, who wrote and recorded the song is very much alive and singing!
