Fun at the Toronto Boat Show…

DSCF0155In one word, amazing!

We volunteered at the CPS booth, promoting all the courses that are currently taught by all the squadrons. Visitors could also walk through a navigation course marked with lateral buoys and rangers. All the safety equipment was also on display like lifejackets, guns and flares (inert), mob rescue methods, radio and navigation aids, anchors and parachutes anchors, cooking stoves and even a cookbook was there. It was pretty neat.

We attended two seminars. Storm Tactics was the first, where we had the pleasure of meeting Lin & Larry Pardey. Lin is a very DSCF0141-1passionate promoter of heave-to, in stormy weather, arriving at night to new ports or just to take a break in rough seas. She couldn’t have been clearer on how important it is to practice the heave-to maneuver since it varies in every boat.

DSCF0157-1At the second seminar we were delighted to meet Tania Aebi who retold her stories about her circumnavigation from her book, Maiden Voyage, which was accompanied by great pictures.

We have read all these sailors-authors books, thus it was a real treat to meet them in person, having the books signed and a picture taken with them. That was awesome!

We knew that there were going to be some great deals and we couldn’t pass a V2-Sport Lewmar windlass we found, along with an assortment of other things that were well priced. We also pick up our online order, so we are happy, success!DSCF0150

Looking forward to an early spring to start working on Intuition again!
