Summer Program 2010- Course 5 Owen Sound to Tobermory

Here is a flier for Toronto Brigantine’s Summer Program.

Each summer the tall ships sail around the Great Lakes and Georgian Bay.  In 2010, we have 8 courses offers. The transition points are at different spots around the lakes, but buses take the children back to and from Toronto.  Click here for the complete summer schedule.

Course #5: Owen Sound to Tobermory through The North Channel, Aug 8 to Aug 15

In Course #5,  this summer, let the winds take you to one of the greatest cruising grounds in the world. Sail from Owen Sound north to the eastern entrance of the North Channel.

Explore the eastern end of the Channel, eat fresh fish and chips in Killarney, enjoy delicious ice cream in Little Current and swim under Bridal Falls.

After leaving the North Channel sail through the islands of Fathom Five National Park  and maybe see some of the ship wrecks there – on your way to scenic Tobermory at the top of the Bruce Peninsula, home of the Che-Cheemaun Ferry.

Here is a youtube video, Tall Ships in Tobermory, showing the brigantines Playfair and Pathfinder tied up at the entrance to Little Tub Harbour, Tobermory, Ontario, Canada. The car/passenger ferry Chi-Cheemaun is docked and is in the process of unloading some of the 140 vehicles that it can carry to Manitoulin Island.

Happy sailing.
