#2 – At the Westport Public Docks in Westport, ON

“Last summer my wife, Jan, and I towed our Rosborough 246, Grania, from our home at Head of St Margarets Bay, NS to the Portsmouth Olympic Harbour in Kingston, ON. We launched there and travelled the Rideau Canal through to the Ottawa River and back.”

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!
