Two Tubs at the Top of Bruce Pennisula

Bruska - April 15, 2014

Having left the North Channel, this month we find ourselves in Tobermory.  The 1951 report for the gateway to lower Georgian Bay is rather sparse, it does, however, get you there.  We are blessed with a much fuller picture of the town and its amenities in the Club's current edition.  Please click here to view the old report, then visit the current report.

NOAA announces paper nautical charts are here to stay.

Joann Mead - April 14, 2014

It won't be long before mariners and the boating public will have a wider choice of options and special services when they purchase NOAA paper nautical charts, thanks to NOAA's expanded "print-on-demand" chart production and distribution system, Coast Survey officials announced April 4, 2014. Coast Survey recently certified new print-on-demand chart printing agents, and gave them the flexibility to offer different color palettes, various papers, a cleaner margin, and a range of services.

Baie Fine, the Pool and the Rocks

Bruska - March 19, 2014

I’m often asked, if I been to the North Channel. I say yes, and the next question is have I been to Baie Fine? Again, I answer in the affirmative. Even non-boaters are intrigued by the place. It’s been said the rocks don’t move. The trick is: to know where they are. The information in 1949 was a little sketchy, but thanks to hundreds, maybe thousands, of cruises by our members things are a little clearer now. The rocks and the Pool are still there, but our report makes it a little safer to venture in. Enjoy the look back in time to the Club’s 1949 report (Click here), and then check out the current report, NC-83, for the latest.
