I was informed by Canadian customs that when I left for a day sail and crossed the imaginary dotted line in the middle of the lake, around 15 or so miles out iirc, that I needed to report back in upon my return to Toronto. A dock neighbour of mine was actually stopped on the way back from such a sail and borded by some strange looking coast guard types.
