Greetings from Maine
Nancy and I sail our Cheoy Lee Offshore 28 , "Compass Rose," From South Freeport, Maine.
I have been a sailor for 35 years, Nancy for 20+ years.
I was paid crew on a chartering sailboat in the late 70's out of Perkins Cove and worked my way down to and through the Carribean and South Florida.
I have a USCG 50 ton license.
Upon return to Maine and meeting my lovely wife we bought a 28' wooden project boat and a sailing dinghy. We then bought a house and gave up the wood boat project. Eventually we moved up to sailing a Nautica 16 then a Chrysler 22 which allowed us great opportunities for gunkholing and extending our range. We took possession of Compass Rose in 2001 and have done many repairs and upgrades and do as many overnights and cruises as possible. We have the Maine Coast from Caco Bay to Mt. Desert Island.
While we will continue to need to work, we are hoping to semi-retire and do the ICW. We have family in NC and have enjoyed the beaches there. We hope to learn the waters, sail and spend time there in the coming years.
