SHIP'S LOG FOR THE YEAR 2002

43S_6W_49T

From March 1st, 2001 to mid-December, 2002 this site averaged 175 hits a month. Thanks to those Chrysler 26 sailboat enthusiasts who contacted us to share sailing information.

Work done:

  1. attend the Forty-fourth Toronto International Boat Show in January
  2. replace squelch potentiometer on vhf marine radio
  3. replace Easylock line clutch with double clutch Spinlock XAS
  4. substantial updates to the website including rigging notes, winterizing information, shared information and more.

Here are a few photographs from the 2002 sailing season.

Snow storm on May 22, 2002

May was the 6th coldest on record making a slow start to the sailing season. Bigelow our cat and I shared the same feeling about May 22nd, 2002. "When is summer getting here so we can go out and play?" A few minutes after this photo was taken the yacht club notified us that we now have a slip in the marina.

Alas, Bigelow passed away on September 12, 2012. R.I.P.

July 1st, 2002

Our new slip at the Regina Beach Yacht Club.

Life's a beach

The view from the slip -- life's a beach -- but we've been too busy sailing to enjoy the view. Returning to the slip can become a challenge when the beach is busy trying to avoid people swimming in the boating channel!
