Nice photos and video (it looks like you had a great sail across from Hope to Shawanaga).
It's too bad about the weather.
Last weekend I explored the small craft channel from Severn Sound, up across the top of Beausoleil, then up to 12-Mile Bay. The weather was fantastic but there was no wind so I had to motor all the way. Still: what do they say about a bad day on the water compared with a good day in the office?
Speaking of 'office' - the party's over! I have to go back to work on Monday. Should still be able to get out evenings and weekends though.

|M275sailer||Yes all the locals say "bay finn" as in a fish finn. Talking about boats bumping into one another, someone thought it would be fun to see what happens if they untie the "Play Fair" in the night. That's the big fishing boat tied at the town docks directly across from me. It was discovered floating free and only just a few yards from drifting into Victoria. Some joke!|

Yeah, I won't try to run it down again until next summer...
We started off with Baie Fine in mind but had open plans in the back of our mind..... needed to wind down more than push hard.
BTW, I could have sworn the charts spell it Baie Fine, but I know a lot of people that refer to it as Finn.

So my boat is safe then?
Yes, when it comes to Georgian Bay you "go with the flow". I never keep firm plans. At anchor a few times while enjoying ourselves and the scenery the weather dictates go now or we won't be back for Monday morning. (I always vote for staying put) But what a cra--y summer we have had for sure. We just came back from four days down Collins inlet with the plan of restocking again at the home port then going to Frazer and Baie Finn. Didn't make it as well. I have loaded and unloaded gear up and down the docks and pulled the pin too many times in the pouring rain this summer.

Qucik video form our first day of sailing, from Hope Island up to Shawanaga Island.
Poor quality from a digital camera.

Patrick, if you're around I'll keep it in mind as we're returning that weekend. Will depend on whether we go through Sat or Sun, time of day and whether we're on the inside channel or outside.
If it works out I'll stick my nose in.
