Re: Maine and North

I have cruised as far as the south coast of Newfoundland and it is incredible but a long, long way from walruses. You can see many whales and once around the corner to the north side of the island ice bergs. You need to be very self-sufficient even in Newfoundland, let alone further north. There are villages with a few provisions and sometimes fuel but that is it. You can tie up at village docks and can anchor often in fairly deep locations. Wonderful and exciting cruising, but make sure you are confident in yourself and your boat.

After the refit we have decided to sell Ainia. We want something smaller that would be could for the light summer winds of Lake Ontario, although we plan to spend at least a couple of winters in the Caribbean before heading north.
