Join GLCC Rear Commodore for The North Channel, Georgian Bay and Canadian Lake Huron Dave Spencer as he guides us through Northern Georgian Bay from Byng Inlet to Killarney. This area is largely wilderness, has a variety of wonderful anchorages and is unique in the Great Lakes as many of the waters are unsounded. You need a sense of adventure to cruise here. If that's you, or if that's what you are aspiring to, you don't want to miss Dave's presentation that has been completely revised and updated for 2021.

The northern portion of the Georgian Bay includes two Provincial Parks: Killarney and French River.  In the second you'll find the outlet of the French River where Samuel de Champlain was the first European to set eyes on Georgian Bay in 1615.  Most of the area looks the same now as it did in Champlain's day.  There are no roads, very few water access cottages with no electricity and extensive waters that are not fully charted to this day.  Webinar instructor Dave Spencer has cruised this area extensively and is looking forward to sharing his knowledge on both easy access anchorages and those that are well off the beaten path in unsounded and challenging waters. Even if you aren't immediately planning on cruising this area, you will be in for an enjoyable and educational evening as Dave presents a fine collection of photographs and charts of this beautiful glacier-carved area in this webinar that has been completely revised and updated for 2021.
