Larry and the crew left Grosse Pointe Yacht Club, MI and headed North up Lake St. Clair to enter the St. Clair River. The west side of the river is Michigan and the east side is Ontario, Canada. He fought a current of 4 knots the entire way to Port Huron, MI (41NM). The next day Independence entered Lake Huron and docked at Goderich, Ontario Canada (49NM). From Goderich to Elgin Harbor was 51NM and from Elgin Harbor to Tobermory was 52NM in 3 to 4 foot seas with a 7 knot wind. Luckily Larry had fixed a glitch with the stabilizers the prior day and they performed perfectly for this rough transit. The following day brought them to Lion’s Head (33NM) where they spent an extra day due to wind but that allowed Larry to get in a 22 mile mountain bike ride. After transiting from Lion’s Head to Beckwith Island (48NM) they anchored for the evening. Finally, arriving at Midland Bay (18NM), outside Toronto (2 hours plus drive in traffic - both ways for poor Larry). As ships pass in the night, the Doherty’s left the boat to check on their home in Virginia and I returned to the boat. I missed 292 nautical miles and am sorry not to be more descriptive in this post...but what can I do....make up for it in the next post!
