Express 30

Express30125The Express 30 was designed by Steve Killing as a "30-foot boat that would have performance, comfort and grace".

Grampian 26

Grampian26125It was one of the nicest sails I have had in my home waters. The sun was shining and the wind was easterly at Trade Wind strength, force 3 to 4. We motored out the opening in the breakwall near Toronto's Western Gap and set the mainsail and the roller-furling genoa in the lee of Ontario Place. Then we close-reached for an hour into Lake Ontario at a steady six knots.
