Hello everyone, looking forward to meeting local sailors in the area and to reading advice on how to adjust my rigging on a C&C 27. Thanks for this site!

Dolphin Beach is on the eastern shore of Nanoose Peninsula, just south of Northwest Bay. Whiskey Golf Military Test Range is right on our doorstep.
Hey, are you going to the C&C Rendezvous this summer?

Yacht Sales West usually send us an email about this time of year telling us when it is going to take place. It happens about the first or second week of August at Telegraph Harbour Marina in Telegraph Harbour on Thetis Island. It's pretty low key but a good time to exchange the experiences we have had with our boats. There is usually a key speaker with a sailing related topic, BBQ, drinks, blind folded dinghy races.
A good time with some good people, kids are welcome.

Dolphin Bay looks to be just south of Schooner Cove Marina, Jesse.

Hey Ron, did I tell you I went out for a sail yesterday and I noticed a real difference in the handling since you helped adjust the rigging. I could especially feel it in the tiller, I had my sails set and didnt even have to touch the tiller, she sailed beautifully!

Actually, Dolphin Beach is just north of Schooner Cove by about a kilometer. Gerald and Amelia Island's are right out front of us.
Schooner Cove Yacht Club races past our front window every other weekend.

Thanks, Dog Ship.. GE had the Dolphin Bay road 'flag' at the other end, right by a nice little bay south of Schooner. Should have checked Navionics first!

Lucky people, nice view! Do you keep your boat nearby? for some reason I thought you were in Victoria...

Yes we are very lucky.
We live in a beautiful spot right on the ocean. We have an eagle tree in our front yard and we get to watch sealions, seals and orca swim right by the house.
We are on a point of land with no obstructions from Vancouver's north shore east, to Comox west. Nothing but ocean in between.
Very lucky indeed.
We recently moved for my work relocation from Victoria to Nanoose. We keep our boat in Nanaimo as we race with NYC frequently.
