 Just back from Lake of the Ozarks where two weekends ago Montreal’s Vision Marine complete two runs and set a new world speed record for electric boats. The first run achieved 111mph breaking Vision’s previous record of 106. The second set a new record of 116!

The Lake of the Ozarks Shootout is the largest unsanctioned boat race in the US and caters to many classes. Vision’s S2 turned a lot of heads and achieved amazing speed.

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!
