I was your neighbour at Doral during your first season sailing (and ours). We had the blue-hulled Northern 25 "Miss Trial".

Hey Damian, nice to hear from you. I wondered if you were still about as I didn't see your boat on 'A' dock.
Our trip was amazing. We got really lucky with the weather. I would hesitate to cross the big Bay in my boat if the weather was snotty.
Sharon & I have done quite a few over-nighters and last year a friend and I went up to Dillon Cove (just north of Franklin Island), but this was by far the biggest trip yet. The trouble now is that the hook is set. I'm chomping at the bit to get out again. If I can find a willing (& compatible) crew I'd like to do the bottom third of the bay in the next couple of weeks. That way I will have done a complete circumnavigation this summer.
If that doesn't work out I want to work on my single-handing so I'm not reliant on finding crew.
Anyhow, keep an eye out for us on the water - may call sign is: 'Northern Lights'. I'll keep an ear open for you.
