Clean Marine Ontario

 

 

 

July 08 2016

The Clean Marine program is gaining strength with Boating Ontario members with an additional five marina operators jumping onboard this spring. With a few others awaiting their initial assessments, the Clean Marine program would like to warmly welcome these five new members to the program:

– George’s Marine & Sport – Kingston
– George’s Marine & Sport – Eganville
– George’s Marine & Sport – Ottawa
– Roger’s Marina – Summerstown
– Trent Port Marina – Quinte West / Trenton

‘As a new marina and member Boating Ontario, we were quite keen to get involved with the Clean Marine program. It was simple and straight forward to do. After completing the pre-assessment, all staff got involved with the initial assessment with Kevin. I am quite happy to mention that we came in at a 5 anchor rating. I would highly recommend all other members to participate in this program. Boaters will now recognize the Clean Marine flag flying at Trent Port Marina and environmentally, isn’t this how all marina operators should be thinking. Craig Carter, Manager of Trent Port Marina expressed his keen interest in joining the program.

Cruising Georgian Bay’s 30,000 Islands: Canada’s Freshwater Paradise for Boaters

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!
