Sailing the Great Lakes Pt.1
It has been about 2 weeks since my last post. I have been on a sailing trip moving a boat from 50 Point Marina in Grimsby on Lake Ontario to Wiarton on Georgian Bay. The trip took 11 days including one layover day due to stormy weather. We left 50 Point 3:00 pm.
We had great wind for the sail over to Port Dalhousie with storm clouds to the North over Toronto. The wind died so we brought down the sails and started to motor. This turned out to be the calm before the storm because the wind shifted to the north and became very strong. It didn’t rain but the wind stayed strong and we were glad to have the sails down. We arrived about 7:00 pm. and prepared to go through the Welland Canal System.
There is a nice lighthouse at Port Dalhousie but it is no longer lit. Tomorrow we will go through the Welland Canal System.
