POTW: It’s Almost There

Gordie Howe Bridge

June 13, 2024

Our SW Ontario contributor, Roger Renaud who sails in the Windsor area keeps us up to date on the progress of the spectacular Gordie Howe International Bridge, currently being built at Canada’s expense to improve the links between the US and Canada.  Read Roger’s latest update here.

First of all, who can resist a bridge named for Gordie Howe. Perhaps more importantly, it’s almost ready to roll as you can see from the most recent photo Roger sent.

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!
