Sticking closer to home this year, we planned to circumnavigate Lake Ontario in a clockwise direction. Our first leg brought us to Henderson Bay, then Sodus Bay and finally Rochester. Here we were happily stuck for a long weekend after our trusty old Volvo Penta had died just 5 miles west of Sodus.
There’s nothing better than a sailing trip with good friends! Our weekend included some engine troubles, Tall Ships and a hover craft. There was great music and food, an interesting town to explore and even a meet up with some friends on their way south. These are the makings of a perfect Long Weekend.
The weather was looking good, so we decided to take a short trip from Gananoque through Kingston to Little Bluff south of Waupoos Island (Prince Edward County). A dinghy trip along the shore of Long Point with a stop at the most western point of PEC and the Point Traverse Lighthouse was a great little outing.
Our first trip into the USA on Vitae in 3 years was part of our Circumnavigation of Wolfe Island with a stop in Clayton NY for the Boat Museum
I have always enjoyed a good challenge and well, this seemed like one of the bigger boat projects one could do with a good sewing machine.
