Goals???? Cross lake Michigan a couple of times, both at the north end and at the mid-section. Do some exploring of big Green Bay and the Door Islands. The one concern is the low lake levels, gezzzsss! The big goal (to make this all happen) is to find more time off from my work/business, you know, delegate. So if any of my employees are reading this, get ready to take over, its time you guys!!!

Study, study, study! This is our first cruising boat, to date have only owned small day sailors. Goal is to retire in two years and head from Lake Erie to the East coast and down to the Caribbean.

I'm going to try more "advanced" sailing, I only have the basics down so I need to get things like balance, reefing, maybe try out a spinnaker. And since we are buying a larger and more comfortable boat (barely, an O'day Mariner 19), I want to try longer trips, like out to Port Colbourne, and circumnavigate Wellesley Island.

I have a few loosely designed goals:

-Spend another season crewing on a race boat to learn more of the finer points of sail trim, boat handling, etc. Last year was my first for racing. It was fun sometimes, boring sometimes, and scary other times. This year I hope to continue to learn and improve

-Spend more weekends aboard with my family. Last year we did a week trip to the east end of Long Island (Montauk Point and Greenport), and a weekend trip to Bridgeport CT. This year I want to spend another week somewhere (Mystic CT?) and more weekends on the boat. I want to visit the Thimble Islands, which has been on my list for a few years know.

-I don't really have any boat improvements goals. This spring I have stripped the bottom paint. I will fair the keel, barrier coat and bottom paint in the next few weeks. The topsides will be cleaned and Piloglow-ed, and I will redo the teak as well. I have a new genoa on order. That's about it.

-The main goal is to just have fun on the boat.

Bubb- None of our goals are as important as your goal this year.

My goal and complete focus right now is to finish the refit and get the boat in the water so we can have our first sail on it (hoping to launch before June 1?). Anything more than that will be viewed as frosting.

1. Sail more.
2. Refinish teak inside and out
3. Do a little of 2 when I'm doing more of 1.

Also, visit Victoria/Sydney and the Gulf Islands, and head down to Gig Harbor, pick up my Dad, sail over to Seattle and take in a Mariners baseball game at Safeco Field.
