You might have noticed that i took the caption away from the first photo of “boats we see and meet”, well, the thing is, that beautiful schooner is not from Port Townsend at all!!! Don’t know why i thought that, maybe because there are so many beautiful schooners in Port Townsend, any way, she is sitting right here, in Canoe Cove marina, the marina where we are going to haul Curtsy out on May 3, for a well deserved bottom cleaning!!! We went there on sunday, to have a look at the haul out yard, and the approach to the ramp, i love all the sailboats moored here, plus the marina has a very strong tide coming in and out, so the marine life is gorgeous!!
But first about the sailboat, she is a schooner, and her owner has raced her in many ,just for schooners races, her name is SV “Copernicus”, and as always, i forgot to ask the owners name……. but, he listens to Chopin, and he is from Poland!! She is in beautiful shape, her bright work gleaming, her hull spotless, we like her!! here are some photos to show her off.
Every harbor has at least one interesting boat, especially an older boat, we love the wooden sailboats, the funky ones, built by a true artist, we love going to the marinas down town, where Bert usually sees some good ideas which we can implement on our boat. We had a good few days, within a few weeks, we will be taking off out of this marina and first haul the boat out, it has been a long time, and them maybe stay around for a while before we head towards Comox.
