    And for those of you who don't know go to www.pilgrimspassages.com and find
    about the passages Brian and his brave wife have made trough.
    If any of you sail Lake Huron and Lake Superior will find out the
    unpredictable weather
    first hand, until then, have a shot of brandy in your quite mooring and
    dream about pacific waters.
