Mobile Sailing School Kicks Off 7th Year

Mobile Sailing School

July 26, 2016

For the seventh year in a row, Sail Nova Scotia has launched its Mobile Sailing Program. With a goal to bring youth sailing programs to areas of the province without, the program has introduced more than 700 kids to sailing. One of the goals too is to encourage communities to develop their own youth program and we have been successful on that in a number of communities. This year the program will visit Pictou, Antigonish, Ketch Harbour, Grand Lake and Shortts Lake. The program will be led by Ryan Davis (left) and Tom Tzagarakis.

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!
