And I'll re-emphasise the point about sailing Georgian Bay: it involves sailing and piloting, amongst markers, rocks and shallows, using ranges and steering courses, not just boat and sail handling - the type of sailing you don't get elsewhere.

Challenge, the stuff of growth!

Gotta fill your cup!
Good idea. My Intermediate Standard (7-day livaboard) will be in the BVIs this winter. It may not be Georgian Bay, but I'll make do.

To bljones

Dear Sir:

Thank you for your kind invitation:
Quote:
knotted, I'm glad you enjoyed it. When are you coming sailing with us again?
I had replied using the new fangled semaphore method, but it appears that such privately sent communications have not yet reached you, or you are absent and enjoying an undoubtedly well deserved vacation. Perhaps on your return?

In short answer to your question: ASAP and at your convenience. That is to say, actually, at a time and date convenient for you, and at Dock 6. Let's leave conveniences, public or private, completely out of this conversation.

It has come to my attention that my prior assessment of the holding and liquid replenishment capacity of the general sailing fraternity appears to be somewhat less than reality. I do therefore propose to bring a larger bottle of wine.... about 100% larger, for the after sail libation.

I remain, Sir, your most cordial friend and sailing associate.

Knotted

Thank you for your reply to first signal. There is another signal to you in the aether, somewhere.... possibly here.

I knew that moments after I posted, you'd read your emails.... and I still didn't check my email before posting

So I just saw your next email... who says I don't learn quickly?
