Seasonal Photo of the Week

Ho-ho-ho. Our Photo of the week comes from Sunday’s Santa Parade. Clowning around was Paul Henderson multi-medal sailing champion, Member of IOC etc. His resume goes on extensively but he appears pretty happy on shore, walking the Parade route.





Here’s what Paul wrote in a note with his pic

Yesterday was the Santa Claus Parade Day in Toronto.

I was born 83 years ago on this day.

120 Sponsors help fund the parade and get the right to be a clown.

Thanks to those who gave me this Birthday Present.

My God he has Hair!!

It was great fun walking for 8 km and seeing the kids from so many different backgrounds and then going back to the RCYC and seeing the kids there.

Cruising Georgian Bay’s 30,000 Islands: Canada’s Freshwater Paradise for Boaters

The Plan

It’s a beautiful morning as we perform our pre-departure checklist, fire up the engines and prepare to release our lines. And if the long-range forecast of very low winds coupled with plenty of sunshine holds, that’s exactly what we need for the areas we plan to explore on this trip! 

We are departing Midland for a week of visiting some of the islands and anchorages within Georgian Bay’s “30,000 Islands” – specifically those along the western edge. These are the less protected islands which face toward wide-open Georgian Bay, where boaters often have to depart the small craft route and work a little harder at setting the hook but are then rewarded with magnificent western views, stunning sunsets, and so much to explore!
