HOME - evolution
Once upon a time, in a land far up north, 2 desperately cold Canadians
boarded a plane and traded in the snow for 2 weeks at a resort in Freeport,
Bahamas. Every morning they wandered across the road to the local marina
for coffee. They looked at the boats bobbing in the blue water. They saw
boats with flags from all over the world. A light bulb went off in his
in the tundra up north, while driving through the countryside he spied
IT. He looked, and looked, and waited and then bought IT, the first boat.
IT is a 1969 CS15 Caprice, a rugged little dinghy that is a perfect learning
boat. He knew something about sailing, she bought a book. Every weekend
they trailered it to local lakes, rigged it up and floated around. It
was nicknamed Nuka Hiva, after an island in the Marquesas.
The trouble with sailing
in the frozen north is that it's just that - frozen for most of
She realized he was a pretty smart guy.
Sailorgirl was born.
