Mast Raising and Lake Ontario

We left the Oswego canal Tuesday afternoon and headed to Fair Point Marina to meet Schyler Barnes to raise the mast.   This is a wonderful marina that feels like a yacht club.  The washrooms are clean and well kept, There is a small clubhouse with laundry facilities, kitchen and library/ games room.  As luck would have it Steve Pettingill from Hunter was there to rig a new Hunter 40 that just came in and Al got lots of pointers on how to tune the B&R rig on Quantum Joy.
What a joy to deal with a well run marina.  We will try to return for the Hunter Reunion this August if time permits.

Thursday  we head for Rochester and Friday or Saturday home likely depending on weather and winds.
