Top 3 Fall Photo Contest Submissions

Fall Photos

Dec 7, 2023

Thanks for participating in our Fall Colours Photo Contest. The most liked photos on our Instagram @cpsboat were:

1st place was submitted by Sandi Little from Manitouwabing Lake, Ontario.

2nd place was submitted by Elizabeth Wilson. Georgian Bay’s east shore, October 28th, tucked away in anticipation of a big blow which never materialized! I love fall boating for days like this – it feels like you’ve been handed a little gift of summer, if only for a short time.

3rd place was last cruise of the year, submitted by Linda Hamilton. This photo was taken at Poonamalie Lock Station on the Rideau Canal and features Sassy Jody 1963 Chris, owned by Linda and Terry Hamilton.

Congratulations! The top photo will be printed and published in the next issue of Port Hole published by Canadian Boating.

Watch for our upcoming Photo Contest announcement in January along with an exciting prize for the winner!

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!
