 North Channel SWS Cruise 2000

"After sailing for a week on our father's Shearwater, True North, during last year's Magnum Opus, my sister, Ellen, and I were really looking forward to the possibility of borrowing a Dovekie for this year's cruise.        As the starting date of the cruise approached my father, Nick, called to let me know that we would be able to borrow the Turnstone from Robert and Jane Clare of Glendale, Wisconsin.  I could hardly contain my excitement!       The Turnstone was the original Dovekie our family had purchased in 1982, and now I would have the opportunity to sail it again with my sister.  This cruise would be the first Dovekie experience for my children, Roby and Gabrielle.  Nick and his wife, Gayle, would be joined on True North by my brother, Dave, for another big family-reunion cruise.       I was looking forward to the extra room afforded by having two boats this year, but also nervous for us to be cruising on our own this time."
