I hope that 2021 will finally be our year for this trip. I’m thinking to follow Alec’s advice and launching in Port McNeil. My reasons are as follows: it will be faster to trailer (the reason for a McGregor), weather will not be a big factor, and we can gunkhole a little longer. Now here’s a wrinkle: the mast is temporarily going into the back yard. I hurt my back last March and I don’t want any isues raising/lowering the mast. ( I will have some sort of pole up though, for the VHF and the MYCBC burgee) Once the rest of the fleet arrives, we will rendezvous at that time.
