Dave Carr

Dave has been sailing for over 50 years and currently lives near Midland, Ontario. Since 1990, Dave and his wife have cruised Lakes Huron, Erie and Superior, and have gained considerable knowledge of Georgian Bay, the North Channel and Lake Superior.

An avid canoeist in Northern Ontario, Dave started sailing at age 13 on "day sailers," and crewed on racing boats on Lake Simcoe in Barrie for a number of years. He purchased his first cruising sailboat in his early 30's. He has cruised extensively on Georgian Bay, Lake Huron, Lake Erie, and the North Channel on a Paceship 29 and then on his Aloha 34. Dave has since moved to a Hunter 410, sailing Georgian Bay, the North Channel and Lake Superior.
