Detroit and St. Claire Rivers

Just a little note about your trip. I live on Lake Erie and race and cruise Lake Erie, Detroit River, Lake St. Clair, St. Clair River, Lake Huron... and have been to the North Channel twice. The plan is to go again this July. I would like to comment on two things. Our yachtclub is on the Detroit River behind Fighting and Grassy Island in Lasalle, Ontario. If you have reservations about staying in Detroit we are known as "the friendliest club on the river". We offer 3 free days of dockage and a smile to boot. Also...a hint about going up the the St. Clair River. When you go under the Bluewater Bridge hug the Canadian side as the current is less on that side. Good luck on your trip and maybe we will see you there. If you need any local information (Amherstburg to North Channel) give me a dingle... I would be happy to point you in the right direction if I can. Oh... by the way... we are also a "call in centre" for customs.
