Hello everyone from Toronto

I've been sailing for almost a year and figured it was time to sign up to these forums. I recently returned from a sailing trip in the Caribbean from Guadeloupe to Dominica and back. It was awesome, I am more hooked than ever to sailing now. Probably looking to buy a boat in the next year or two.

Hi smackdaddy,

I have a detailed write up with pictures and Google map of the route taken, but I'm not allowed to post links on the forum yet. I have added a signature, so it should be there or in my profile. It's the most recent entry.

I plan on putting together a youtube video soon too, I took a lot of video snippets while down there.

Ian

Hey Ian;

I can't wait for sailing season either, will be bringing my boat back from Annapolis to Frenchman's Bay Marina in Pickering in May.
