S.V. Islay Mist is a fully restored, 1971 Pearson 39. She is sloop rigged and sails very well. Warm, comfortable and above all safe, Islay Mist is maintained to very high standards and equipped with modern navigation equipment and safety gear.
Jim MacDougall has been sailing all his life. As a young man, Jim spent endless days sailing with his father on the Great Lakes. Jim then chartered on the west coast where he completed cruising and navigation courses through the Canadian Yachting Association. After a 26-year career with the Calgary Police Service, Jim retired to the west coast with his wife, Ivana. They are now fulfilling a mutual dream to own and operate a "proper sailing yacht". Sailing Islay Mist is not just a hobby - its a passion, and it shows in the care and attention lavished upon this vessel.
