The winter of 2018-19 has been especially windy in maritime Canada. A windstorm in late November made a mess of our cover.


Fortunately, our service provider re-covered the boat as soon as the winds settled down.

It is now March and spring is in the air, the sun is getting warmer and we are getting anxious to take the cover off the boat. This year, the vernal equinox occurs at 5:58 PM on March 20th.

Soon it will be time to launch Gallivanting for another season. We plan to start with a short visit to Bras d’Or lake, before heading down the eastern seaboard.


On the hook, near Baddeck on Bras d’Or lake  in August 2018.

    Captains: Looking forward to hearing about your upcoming trip to the East and glorious relaunching of Gallivanting. Will want to follow your exciting journey south and see some of the many beautiful places on this next chapter of your expedition. Hope the rain in our area subsides so we have to dedicate less time to cutting grass. 🙂 Wishing you all the best with your preparations!
