Spring commissioning of Wild Horses started in earnest on Friday. Her winter cover was removed, her canvas cockpit enclosure was reattached and she was thoroughly tidied up inside. My gosh – she looks like a sailboat again!
We have set our launch date from Loyalist Cove Marina for May 11 and cannot wait to get her back in the water. And this year, she will be launched and she will stay in the water. Winter covers, antifreeze, ice and snow are all history. Yes, borders have been opened and vaccines, boosters, masks etc. have all made it possible to live a new normal life within the pandemic. We will finally be headed south to the Caribbean this fall.
This summer our home base will once again be Trident Yacht Club. From there, we will finish up a few boat projects like installing our Rainman Water Maker. We will also get Ocean’s required vaccinations and tests for international travel and other “we-are-actually-finally-going” tasks. 😊
Our planned departure date from Canada is September 10. Not that this will definitely be the day we leave but it is the earliest date we are planning for, weather permitting. We cannot wait!
