Summer 2011 Course #1 Lower Lakes and Welland Canal

COURSE #1: The Lower Lakes and the Welland Canal (Toronto to Port Dover)

Depart Toronto for a scenic sail across the western end of Lake Ontario admiring the Niagara Escarpment en-route. Lock through the historic Welland Canal into Lake Erie and sail west to Port Dover.

The Welland Canal is one of the major seaways on the Great Lakes. Some more pictures of the Brigs on the canal are posted here.

On this short course, you sail on two of the “lower lakes” – Lake Ontario and Lake Erie.

This Google map roughly outlines the route.

  1. This summer – as almost every summer – the first course involves going through the Welland Canal. The common memory of going through the canal – no matter when you sailed with Toronto Brigantine over our almost 50 years of history seems to be about fending off against the slimy walls as the canal fills up.

    Here is a picture of Playfair going through the Canal last week (summer 2011)!/photo.php?fbid=10150304846986163&set=a.10150103041561163.315496.53552951162&type=1&theater

  2. Course #1 sails past Windsor ON. While we were in Windsor, we are also able to stop off at Sterling Fuels terminal to fill up our fuel tanks . Thanks to Frank, Waleed, and Peter for your sterling service.

    Check out this picture of the refueling.!/photo.php?fbid=10150310161966163&set=a.10150103041561163.315496.53552951162&type=1&theater
