We sailed in Squamish for 23 years.... I miss those days now.

But still we had a decent light air sail in pleasant conditions (esp for mid October), sailing upwind in English Bay to the bellbuoy in 5-6 knots, and drifting/sailing back on the tide with the spinnaker up. Took new SN member SFU for the afternoon.. he may be buying sooner rather than later now!
