Black Diamond Departs for the Bahamas!


Crew PCYC to Sackets Non-Stop, Mark Garrett & Psycho Skipper Ed, Alex riding up with Roxane and Thomas in a couple days!


Departing right no schedule for the Bahamas!


Black Diamond has officially left the Port Credit Yacht Club this afternoon at 3:30pm, a few hours behind schedule. A little extra time loading all our supplies on for wintering in the Bahamas for the next couple of years….Currently on Route back to our favourite service depot, Navy Point at Sackets Harbour New York! Here she will get a little tender loving care, the mast lowered on to its cradle for the ride through the Oswego and Erie Canals and finally down the Hudson River to New York City, where she will stay on mooring there until mid November, when we will take her offshore non-stop, NYC to Abacos Bahamas.

But for the next 24 hours, you can track us across Lake Ontario to Sackets Harbor, New York State at this link.
