In response to last issued POTW of Ketch 22 from Hilton Beach, ON, we received a couple of good ones: Mike Vollmer sent along pun-ny name, “No Gust, No Glory” and promises us a photo from Chippewa ON.

In response to last issued POTW of Ketch 22 from Hilton Beach, ON, we received a couple of good ones:

Mike Vollmer sent along pun-ny name, “No Gust, No Glory” and promises us a photo from Chippewa ON.

From Hamilton, Tom Roesslein sent along HELOC which, as it turns out, stands for Home Equity Line Of Credit. Seems appropriate.

More on Severn II
Collision avoidance is the paramount responsibility of any vessel underway whether racing or not. Basic rules concerning right of way have to be considered when undertaking any maneuver and still rank behind avoiding collision if possible whether in the right or not.

In the Severn II and Yquem incident it is very fortunate no one was injured or worse. The eights are very heavy vessels with powerful rigs and carry a huge amount of momentum. Vessel collisions are caused by equipment failure or human error. The latter is easily managed.

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!
