Memorable Memorial Weekend on the Water

Bill Rohde - May 27, 2014

With the unseasonable winter's ice cover and slow melt, this year's Memorial weekend proved to be memorable to say the least. The two accompanying photos show how Lake Superior cruisers enjoyed the holiday. The left photo is from Bayfield Wisconsin Yacht Club member Carl Olding; the right from GLCC member Bob Hansen. Lake Superior boats typically launch starting the first week of May, but not this year. Some Marinas are still iced in.

2014 Wilderness Rally

Cindy - May 21, 2014

The 2014 Wilderness Rally is planned for Monday, July 28, through Thursday, July 31 at Turnbull Island (NC-55). The Rally is returning to this scenic North Channel anchorage because it is large enough to handle the increasing popularity of this event. Additionally, there is an alternative location close by should the wind direction make Turnbull Island anchorage too uncomfortable. Click here for more information and registration.

A Canadian Town Then And Now

Bruska - May 15, 2014

This month we continue our journey Southward through the Great Lakes.  We are stopping at a busy commercial harbor on the western side of the Bruce Peninsula. In 1950, our Harbor Report was very sparse.  A visiting boater would have little reason to visit, except to rest and buy necessities.  Today’s report is more comprehensive with ample reason to visit.  Please click on the vintage Goderich report, then as usual compare it to the latest edition.
