"Free At Last " from Toronto docked in the Azores

Getting ready for another year of sailing in Europe

On Dec 3 2006, John Emomd sailing the boat above left the Canary Islands to sail back across the South Atlantic to Trinidad.
Not sure of the exact route but he expects to spend Christmas at sea alone.
If he sails to the Cape Verde Islands it is a 900 mile sail before a few days rest and then about 2000 miles to South America. The direct route is over 2500 miles till he arrives in Trinidad and he expects to fly to Toronto for the Boat Show in January of 2007.
The boat he is sailing, he built himself and sailed it to home to Holland in 2003. Last winter it was pulled out in the Azores while he was here back in Canada. The boat is 34 feet, built in steel in Newmarket, Ont. I made the original wire to rope halyards for Free at Last in 1998 and last winter I repaired two that had been damaged when he had problems with his masthead sheaves. He brought them back and forth on the plane while his boat was hauled out across the pond.
Good luck to John and I will post any news here if he gets back to land to email me of his progress like if he decides to land in Cape Verde instead of using the longer direct route.
News! He made it across and now is in Tobago, more to follow later, he landed there on New Years Day....

UPDATE--- Jan. 30, 2008
John is about to set out for another voyage on board Free at Last. Not sure if he will sail back up North to Halifax or take a turn and head back to the Azores and from there home again to Holland.
 
Update--- May 1, 2009
Free at Last stayed on this side of the ocean and in 2008 made its way to Halifax.
All winter of 2009 the boat has been staying at the Dartmouth Yacht Club. At this time John is getting ready to sail back to Holland and I think trade her in for a new bigger boat. Should be leaving Halifax in June and heading west again. Not sure if he will have any crew this time for the crossing. Azores, here he comes again!

My time as a Rigger for Whitby Boat Works
whitby42.jpg

Memories of the old days working on a boat in Whitby Hr. This picture goes back almost 40 years to 1974 when I was just a young lad trying to carve out a living in the big city of TO. Some of the people are with the big guy that owns the boat from New York City. Boat was a Whitby 42 and we are putting it together for its first sail on Lake Ontario before it motored down the New York State Barge Canal all the way to Manhatten.
