Katlynn Marine on Lake Ontario in beautiful New York State is our hailing port. There are over 200 boats here, a combination of sail and power with lots of room for picnics and get-togethers. Here is a view of the marina via the picnic pavilion. Just a short walk to the left and you'll be in downtown Sodus Point where there are great restaurants, beaches on the bay and the lake, a light house with free Sunday concerts, and live music every week-end during the summer.
Katlynn Marine on Sodus Bay launches Waves of Grace May 18th and on the 19th the mast goes up. We plan on leaving our boat in the water for the next three years, wintering in the Florida Keys and the Bahamas, and returning to Sodus Bay each summer.
Walt is preparing our keel-stepped mast for the 2009 sailing season. He is adding a TV antenna so that we'll be able to get weather reports and news while sailing. He is reluctant to add any height because we are already almost 60 feet high and most bridges are only 65 feet...... Walt also replaced our mast head light with a power-saving LED.
Walt and I have been avid sailors for 38 years. Our retirement dream was to sail to Florida and the Bahamas for the winter months which we did for the first time last year, 2007-2008. We decided that we loved the cruising life
and four days after our return to Lake Ontario we traded our Catalina 320, Eagle's Wings, in for a Catalina 42 which we named Waves of Grace. We hope to continue to cruise in the Florida Keys, Gulf of Mexico, and the Bahamas for many years to come
