2013 Summer Cruise

wirlwind - July 26, 2013

Made it to Tobermory from Collingwood.  First day, went to Hope, had to go around Beckwith Island to get there.  The wind was 15 Kts from the NW and waves were about 2ft.  Sailed with just the Genie made about 6 Kts.  The next day decided to go to Wingfield Basin but in stead made Tobermory.  Got in about 2030.  Was met by a Blue Grass band...Met Marli and Warren Fitz and had drinks on their boat.  Still waiting to hear from Frank about where to meet him.  Anyhow good start to the Cruise.


wirlwind - September 7, 2012

Traveled yesterday from Hopewell to Britt.  Strong winds from the NW.  Spent the night at the Town docks.  Had to pay this time.  Went for dinner at the Little Britt Inn, not as good as it was.  Found out that Jim had surgery and left for Places South...Also Paddy of 'The Paddy Shack'...Died last year.  Now this just seems like any run down old Northern Ontario town...DULL...Anyhow, tomorrow may be a bad day to head out so may stay here one more night and head for Club Island or Kilarney???
