60 deg, light wind. SW
I guess I should start by who I am and my back ground. Leading into my sailing experience and current boat. Then I can support my current location and passage.
I'm just rounded the horn as to say and turned 42. My Home for the bulk of my life has been Windsor, Ontario, Canada. A Industrial city located 1 mile across from Detroit Michigan. My access to the great lakes has been from a young age and have sailed since the age of 7. Starting out on a Lazar Sailboat which is still in the family. Having a cottage on lake Erie East of Point Pelee I took well to boating. Our family then obtained a 18 foot Catamaran.
My real first traveling experience was at age 16 when I was sent to Kingston Ontario to crew on the Tall Ship St. Lawrence II. Experiencing Lake Ontario, Lake Erie, and Lake St Clair.
Over the years I crewed on friends boats. And in 1999 purchased a Shark 24. Sail Number 341. A very fast and comfortable sailboat I took on short trips across lakes St Clair and Lake Erie.
