Hello from Victoria, B.C.

Hi everyone,

I have been sailing and racing sailboats for 40 years.
My wife and I have just recently purchased a C&C 32. My wife is new to sailing but has a lot of experience on the water those other type of boats.
We are moored in Tsehum Harbour and try to get out as much as possible. Since I am the only crew and my wife is the skipper we, for the most part, just putter about the Sidney Basin, Satelite Channel and Haro Strait.
Over the winter I plan on racing the boat and getting it ready for the 2012 cruising season.

Welcome! Always good to see another BC'er on the board.

Nice boat, nice area. You've got a lot of awesome weekend getaway destination near you, so be sure to do some exploring. For warmer water swimming in summer head north, as so many others do!

Welcome fellow Canuck, from a prairie pirate.

I have always liked the older C&Cs. I have sailed a 32, nice boat.

You might think about getting the admiral some sailing lessons for Christmas. Have two competent sailors on boat makes for a much more pleasant experience.

Well that's quite the invite and thank you everyone.
We stole, er, rather bought the boat this summer.
I too have always liked C&C's as they are built like a tank. The deck has a balsa core but the hull is good old solid tupperware. It was a one owner, local boat, that the fellow had spent years setting up for his retirement, but sadly his health failed him and he had no choice but to sell it.
For the last 15 years or so it has sat pretty much unused at Royal Victoria Yacht Club. His son would take it out racing occasionally but that was it.
It has a brand new 3cyl. Yanmar, two mains, 5 head sails, a spinniker and a genniker. It had an old radar which I have already removed, and a Garmin chartplotter that I am having some trouble with.
It was last surveyed in 09'. Not that that means anything as anyone can be a boat surveyor, but that's a whole nother website right there.
I just replumbed and replaced the old head and replaced all the propane stuff up to the appliance. I also seviced all the through hulls. Eventually I am going to do away with the propane system and install an alcohol stove as propane scares the hell out of me.
We have had it out a few times and other than the Garmin not showing any detail, ie; Nav. markers, depth, etc. I have not found any thing wrong with it.
The previous owner kept all the literature on everything and was very maticulous about maintenance.
I have been in contact with the Canoe Bay Sailing Club and will be out for a race this Sunday. If the weather man is correct we are also going out on it today but it is pretty foggy here in town. I can hear fog horns while I type.
As far as the admiral goes I still reserve the right to a mutiny and can turn on the auto-helm. Ha Ha!
Nice boat jrd22 I really like those cruisers and I will keep an eye out for you.
Where abouts are you moored PaulinVictoria. It would be nice to hook up and go for a sail. It's always better when you can pace yourself with someone else.
I am also looking for some crew for the up coming racing season. I have not been able to pop the shoot yet as my wife is still learning the ropes, so to speak. It would be nice to have someone who also knows what they're doing and put the boat through it's paces.
Anyway enough said.

Peter&Denise

Sounds like a fine tub. We're up at Westport.
Not sure if racing against you is a good idea, I think you have a little bit of an advantage (like 8ft of it!), although I guess you could try to keep up
I might be interested in doing some crewing over the winter, although you're looking for someone that knows what they're doing so that pretty much rules me out. Not sure how often I could/would crew though, on the nice days I have a boat that also needs using
Anyway, always happy to hook up for a sail, whether it's arranged or we just happen to be going in the same direction out there. We are usually pretty easy to spot, we're the orange one going round in circles.
