Sailing with Duncan

Naturally Curious


Welcome to Sailing with Duncan 

Thanks for joining us.

Sometimes you just have to take the bull by the horns or in this case the Cairn Terrier by the boat and head to charted and uncharted waters.

Duncan travels with Cindy and Jeff Cunningham aboard the 1996 Catalina 34 MKII named Respite. The three have sailed thousands of miles on the Great Lakes over the years.

We hope you enjoy sailing with us.

Finding our way forward

With Canada closed to USA boats for the foreseeable future, and marinas along the east coast of Lake Michigan struggling to even get open due to the high lake levels, it is hard to see where this summer will take Duncan and his crew aboard Respite. Still, Respite is in the water and we have sailed once, which was glorious. While we explore our future, I will post this video of our young friend Isaac making his way up our mast to retrieve a line from the stack pack that escaped. They say you never forget your first time and I suspect that Isaac will remember his. His brother Jacob was on the winch.
