POTW: What I Did on my Summer Vacation

Sept 28, 2023

When Elissa, our publishing athlete who puts out all the boating publications, took her well deserved holidays in NS this August, what did she do?  She didn’t go hiking or golfing; she immediately headed down to the waterfront and started taking POTW photos. Of course!

Our photo of the week is Elissa’s.  She liked this hardcore fisher boat for its rugged good looks and interesting name. 

BUT, the next Photo of the Week could come from your summer vacation.  Just pick a boating related shot – kids, signs, sunsets, attention-grabbing boats or ports – and send it along. We publish shots every issue and we need yours. Just email it to onboard@kerrwil.com and put POTW in the subject line. Thanks in advance.

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!
