On to the North Channel

12 July 2009
Our friends are here and we celebrated the reunion with a cocktail (wine) hour on French Connection, but only after Michael convinced himself that he could find my Fuel cap. Alas after several dives into mid 50 degree water, there was no sign of it.

We did have a little excitement as two large sailboats headed for the Chicago Mac race got into trouble close to the breakwall in the harbor more on that in a few days. 45min later everyone was safe at the fuel dock - on to a nice dinner at the PIYC and back on the boat prepping for the trip tomorrow. Read that as getting all of our warm clothes out since the forecast up here for all week is mid 60's.

This is the last bog update for a few days since we'll be in remote parts of Canada, first to Meldrum Bay then on to Long Point and a few other anchorages. After tomorrow, we will be checking in via Cruisers Net on channel 71 which is broadcast from the Anchor Inn in Little Current, Manitoulin Island (705)368 - 2023 iwhere you can get ahold of us if necessary. Once we get into Little Current, I'll update the gallery with lots of photos
