Final Schedule

2018-02-24T11:50:30+00:00 February 24, 2018|

With a few adjustments, the schedule of our courses is now set.  The only unknown is that the course September 10-14 could be either Day Skipper/Comp crew or a Coastal Skipper , but not both.  The first booking will determine the course.

New Prop for Michaela

2018-07-21T19:17:51+00:00 January 2, 2018|

Here is the prop we will be using in 2018 and beyond.  A Campbell Sailer 17×9.5LH. I love these props.

It will give more ‘grunt’ in reverse.  The old prop was also a Campbell sailer, 15x9RH.

AIS Transceiver

2017-12-12T10:49:56+00:00 December 12, 2017|

We have an AIS (Automatic Identification System) Transceiver on Michaela.  It allows us to be seen and tracked by a large range of vessels and in particular, the big ones.  It is a great collision avoidance device and as prices come down, more and more vessels are acquiring one.

You can see us on http://marinetraffic.com search for MMSI # 316001829, or look for Michaela with the Canadian flag.  We may not be visible everywhere but if we are close to our marina we will show up.  Even though we may not be updated on Marine Traffic, we are still visible to all vessels with an AIS receiver.

Mile Builders

2017-12-02T12:46:27+00:00 July 24, 2017|

We just completed two mile builder trips – Chester to Charlottetown PE and return, a total of 602 nautical miles with pretty good weather.  Good food, skill building, night sailing …. all in all a very good 2 weeks for everyone.

Maybe the Bay of Fundy should be on the list for next year.
