back again

I had been out of sailing for a while. My first boat was a San Juan 24 which I purchased in 1997, and it was a great boat to learn the art of sailing! I owned the San Juan for 3 years, then sold it with plans to purchase a larger boat. We all know how life goes sometimes and the larger sailboat was put on hold. Well, to make a long story short, last month I purchased a beautifully maintained 1982 C&C 34! I am in the Vancouver Island, British Columbia area and can't wait to pick up where I left off!

Congrats! I sailed a C&C 34 for 3-4 years and miss the boat terribly. Great layout, excellent handling and fond memories. Fair winds!

Hey BCSailor, I have a C&C 32.
Where on the Island are you?

Congratulations! However, as a friend on another forum says, "no pictures, it didn't happen". So, where are the pictures of your boat?

Hey Peter, I have my boat in Ladysmith, so getting to the C&C Regatta will be just a short little sail. Where are you at?

Jim, I suppose pictures are better! So here is a picture of the first weekend I spent on it last month.

Hey Alfy,
I live in Victoria but I keep my boat in Sidney.
Nice boat by the way, looks like someone took good care of it.
Do you race?
Here is a shot a freind of mine took of us with there phone. Not the greatest picture, but other than taking pictures of our boat from the boat it's all I have so far.
Peter

That's a great place to keep your boat Peter! When I had my San Juan 24, it was moored in Port Moody and I used to make trip to the Gulf Islands every chance I had and visited Sidney a few times! I am going to be living in the Nanaimo / Ladysmith area soon, which is why I am just keeping my boat there, rather than move it. I also acquired the moorage with the purchase, which worked out great! I did club racing quite a bit with my last boat and will definately be looking to to some racing again this upcoming season! Are you with a sailing club? I think I will join the Ladysmith Yacht Club once I am there.

Thanks Jim, I was very fortunate to find a boat that the owners took such great care of!

Congrats and welcome.. the 34 was on our short list on our last shopping spree but we couldn't find a good one at the time.
