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.
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
The Welland Canal is always a challenge, and while we have come down the Canal a few years ago we have always been told that going up is far worse due to turbulence created…
This is our shake-down cruise in more than one sense: It’s our first trip as gainfully retired, and it’s going to be our longest sailing adventure in both mileage and time. We will be gone until at least mid August.
