A J/32 Cruising Sailor's Perspective on Pandemic Life

J/32 cruising sailboat(Charlevoix, MI)- A J/32 owner from the northern part of Michigan had this to offer to fellow J/Sailors....

"Being in Michigan, our marinas are currently closed. At this point we will probably be lucky to launch at Irish Charlevoix by mid June.

We still love the 32, your best design yet. She has a pampered life these days as we generally only sail her for three months and then she spends her time in heated storage.

Our cruising is now confined to northern Lake Michigan, but it is good that a couple of near 80 year-olds can still do some shoreline cruising and visit our favorite ports. With an electric winch for the main halyard and the 110 jib you helped us select, the boat is very manageable.  All the best, Tom and Gretchen" Add to Flipboard Magazine.
