Hi 25 from Canada

Hi been stalking around this site for about a week now after finding it randomly on the net, So i decided i would join and say hi, I'm 25 and from NB Canada but living in Winnipeg for the time being. Departing in the spring with my uncle and our Alberg 30 from Thunder bay through the great lakes and down the St Lawrence to the Atlantic, Hoping to learn a bit more from reading on here and getting some advice. The crazy thing is I only had a Double lung transplant less than 10 months ago because i have Cystic Fibrosis, and i am hoping to do the trip to raise awareness for Organ Donation and raise money for Cystic Fibrosis, I do have 2 videos of the trip from this past summer less than 6 months after my surgery when me and my uncle sailed from Toronto To Thunder Bay i have posted them on youtube feel free to check them out and i would be glad to hear some feed back from other sailors, well thanks and Hi.

Look Up Sailing Superior (2009) and Sailing Superior 2 (2009) on youtube to see videos.

Ps sorry if this seems a little arrogant for my first post just wanting some feedback on what people think.
