Hi Jamison, I sailed out of Thunder Bay for many years. Our cruising ground is now Newfoundland
, but I still miss the Big Lake. Superior is truly one of the great undiscovered cruising grounds.
The Apostles are your immediate playground. When you're ready, heading up to Isle Royale would be great, and even over to the Keewatin Peninsula. And when the world returns to normal, and after you've got some experience under that keel
, consider exploring the north and east shores (the Canadian side). Up here you will find endless shores to explore, with few (if any) other boaters around.
