The Krazy Sailor

Not really a crazy sailor, but it was an available username and an amazing number of non-sailors think we are crazy, so why not:) Overall, I’m usually over prepared and move along at a leisurely pace.

Retired male, sailed a lot in his twenties, Canadian Power Squadron courses, Canadian Red Cross Wilderness Remote First Aid course.

In 2006 purchased a 59 foot sailboat in Boston, fixed it up and motored to Nova Scotia.

Purchased EvenSong a 1971 36 foot Moody Halberdier fiberglass sailboat in Buffalo, New York in 2008 and worked on it for four months to upgrade systems. Sailed the current sailboat from Buffalo to Rimouski last fall with crews of one to three others and two days single-handed.

In 2010 sailed from Rimouski, Quebec to Nain in Northern Labrador and then down to Port Saunders on the West Coast of Newfoundland. Sailed over one half of the way from Hopedale Labrador to Nain and then South to Port Saunders solo.

In 2011 sailed from Port Saunders around Newfoundland via St. John’s to Port Aux Basques and then across to Nova Scotia and on to Pictou, Nova Scotia, one half of it solo.

In 2012 bought a 36 foot Trisbal 36 foot aluminum sailboat in Florida and sailed back to Nova Scotia in 2014 / 2015.
