Camp Perry inner range buoys

This Labor Day I will be sailing to Port Clinton in the western end of Lake Erie from the Toledo Ohio aria.

I heard that you should never navagate within the inner range of the Camp Perry buoys even when there is no live fire activities. I would like to know if this is true, it would save me much time maybe even hours if I could breach the inner range by sailing direct.

How can I know for sure? Can anyone help me with the info I need, otherwise I will natrually avoid the inner pirameter and suffer the longer leg by going around.

Monitor channel 16. There are repeated announcements of when the firing is active. If they are not firing, you should be able to sail in that area. You can also call the Coast Guard and ask them. They should also have the schedule.

dorourke, where are you in the Toledo area ?
My wife & I bought a 1980 S2 8.0B this season & sailed her out of Anchor Pointe.
Always looking to compare notes, especially now that we're planning projects for next season...

Out of interest, we also have a Port Clinton in central Qld coast. It also is part of the Military exclusion zone - but when they are not playing soldiers, Port Clinton is one of the most beautiful places to explore.
