Seminar Details

Using beautiful images Alexei will show you how with his wife Elena they sailed from Toronto via Lake Eerie and Manitoulin Basin of Lake Huron to Lake Superior. They sailed along the North shore of the Superior visiting accommodating Quebec Harbour on Michipicoten Island, wild and dangerous beauty of Puckasaw River, foggy and enigmatic Slate Islands and arrived to Thunder Bay, the most West point of St. Lawrence Sea Way. On the way back they anchored in many beautiful coves and bays seeing very few people around but had numerous encounters with wild life. They crisscrossed the North Channel and Georgian Bay of Lake Huron and motored though Trent-Severn Waterway on the rout to Lake Ontario and their home bay of Aquatic Park Sailing Club.
