MacGregor 72, Sailordanny 72
Partially retired and transitioning to sailing another MacGregor, started on a Venture 21 in Georgia now renovating and sailing a MacGregor 70 in the Pacific Northwest.
Keep it on a mooring buoy in Patricia Bay, BC. Easy to hoist the sails and drop the buoy, sail for the afternoon then reverse the process, drop the sails and pick up the buoy.
Frequently sail alone or short crewed. Boat looks after us even with the big sails up, spinnakers, blast reachers and code zero. Light wind area with a light wind boat, Salish Sea, inshore waters.
Started with one of Roger MacGregor's first boats a MacGregor 21 on Lake Lanier, Georgia. Interesting to have one of the last boats a MacGregor as well.
Boat was in Key West when I acquired it. Gradually renovating and learning to sail a performance boat.
I find your forums interesting and informative as I have browsed them.
My interests are the learning process of sailing and seamanship along with the requirement to maintain the strength and agility to sail as my age matches the length of my boat.
As they say in Georgia Take Care
