There's a decent ramp at the town dock in Penetang but it gets crowded with powerboats. The harbour is wide enough to sail a dinghy. If you're not going out on nice summer weekends it might work.

Re: hi from Barrie Ontario

Congrats. I sailed a friend's Mirage 26 quite a lot on Lake Superior, including doing some long, remote distances. Great little boat. Large living space for it's size, and pretty good sailor. It'll be great.
