Safely Into The North Channel

12 July 2013 | Gore Bay
Bob, super
Getting to Gore Bay, MI on Manitoulin Island took a little longer than expected. We figured a long sail from Mackinac to our Canadian check in point a Meldrum Bay but Mother Nature changed the game. Two great nights in Whitney Bay weathering a Nor'Wester. We should have gone east but as cruisers 25 knots is worth a little comfi-time reading and doing projects. Next day Meldrum Bay. Lots of attempts to sail and too much powering. Very light winds as a huge high pressure ridge settled in. As a side note, the Mac Race is this weekend, I just hope they have some air.

Now back to the cruise.

Ya know, these Canadians have it right. We arrived in Meldrum Bay to check into Canada. All check-in requires is a simple free phone call; a few questions like your name and how long you want to stay and you're done. Nice and easy, nice and friendly.

Alice and I have spent considerable time together on the water; cruising and racing on the waters of New England, the Caribbean and Lake Michigan.

Sailing is our passion and together we've been fortunate to experience the thrills, the camaraderie and the enjoyment boating provides. [...]

We seek the freedom, excitement and challenges of voyaging.

This is our second journey south to the Caribbean. This time we've chosen to exit Lake Michigan and proceed south through the in-land waterway system to Mobile. We'll start around Labor Day and take our time exploring the history of middle America.
