It's the Eastern portion of the little harbor that opens to the north right on the Lake.

Ummmm...I'm gonna go out on a limb here and say.... Windy?

But seriously, I have not had my sailboat out there yet, so no idea.

I figured that was the spot.

I've been wondering if that is the place to stop for customs check in when coming up the St Clair river and deciding to cruise the Canadian side.

I'd be interested in how deep the water is there and whether anchoring is OK in the harbor, at least temporarily.
Might be trying a push up to tobermory this summer if I can get the time.

For Canadian Border Services Agency offices in the region, go to Directory of CBSA Offices

I don't know if Lake Huron Yachts has transient slips, but Sarnia Bay Marina does for sure.They also have a pool and laundry and a little restaurant.

We've sailed our CS27 out of Bayfield Ontario for a few years. It's a great sailing community but we are moving to the Georgian Bay side of the Bruce Penninsual this season to be closer to the glorious north channel and to anchorages reachable on a weekend. The long haul (110nm) from Bayfield to Tobermory seems to take half our precious vacation time and recently it has been uphill and against the wind both ways.
Does anyone know of a local boat hauler in SW Ont / Bruce Penninsula who could move our vessel sometime in early May?

CS27
We used Andrews to go from Bayfield to Toronto ('06) and Toronto up to GB('08). They were on time, secured everything well, had no damage or problems.
For the record they felt that both hauls were to far to take her on her cradle (which suited me just fine) travel lift was used to load and unload in both cases on/off an air-ride trailer, cradle and mast were shipped on the same truck at the same time.
It was NOT inexpensive.
Make sure you call your insurance company prior to shipping. Our insurer covered the trips at no additional cost, but it is not part of a standard policy.
