First Sail of the Season up the St Lawrence along the Kingston Waterfront. Ep66

Ep66. In this episode of Cruising Off Duty, we do the best we can to make some quick fixes to the boat so we can use it this summer. No boat yards are available to work on our boat for months so temporary fixes are going to have to do for now.

We get out for our first sail on the St Lawrence and explored Wolfe Island, Cedar Island and the Kingston Waterfront. It was a beautiful sunny day (which has been very rare lately) so it made for some great footage.

We finish off the episode showing how, owning a sailboat has many more benefits than just allowing you to explore the beautiful waterways, but also has the extra benefit of greatly enriching your circle of friends. Sailors, and especially cruising sailors, are the most friendly people in the world and before long you have close life long friends. We invite our good sailing friends Dan and Theresa on our boat to have a birthday celebration dinner for Theresa. You have seen “Captain” Dan and Theresa before when we were together on our BVI Catamaran Charter series.
