Sackett's to Toronto

good afternoon everybody...suns out in Toronto and the launch is going smoothly. I bought a C&C 38 that's lying in Sackett's Harbour in NY state and bringing her back to Toronto. Has anyone done this trip and care to share the preferred route with suggestions?

Thanks for your help.

Welcome aboard High C's

I guess it depends on how big a hurry you are. You can cut across to the Cdn side of the lake and parallel the shipping channels straight down the lake to TO about 144 nautical miles. You'll have to watch the weather though. A lot of people leaving the Erie Canal at Oswego will scoot along the south shore (Sackett's to Niagara on the Lake 150 nautical miles) of the lake and make a straight crossing to TO from Niagara on the Lake about 22 nautical miles. The other way, if you're not in a hurry head up to Kingston and follow the north shore and Bay of Quinte, Murray Canal and again follow the shore (with plenty of places to stop) to TO about 170 nautical miles or so.

A few options to explore. Good luck.

Congrats on the boat.

Wait for an east breeze, pop the kite, and be home the next day?

Thanks for the welcome and advice to you both. Much appreciated. Considering the north shore and watching the weather as May is unpredictable and cold.

Down into Lake Ontario and straight to Toronto. Congrats on the new boat. Take your woollies, it's freezing this time of the year. Went from Oswego to Toronto in early June once and the water temperature was in the thirties (that's F not C !!).

You might be able to pick up a hot breeze coming in from Ottowa if the Parliment is in session. Those guys seem to gerate a lot of hot air.
