Join Peter Plumb as he takes us along on his three-month Newfoundland circumnavigation, including a side trip to Red Bay, Labrador. The voyage began and ended in his home port, Portland, Maine, with stops in Nova Scotia, Cape Breton and St. Pierre along the way.

Peter Plumb invites you along for his exciting cruising account of circumnavagating Newfoundland, including a visit to Labrador ... and more. The far northeast Canadian maritimes represent some of the best and most scenic remote cruising in the world, an area with few if any roads and where widely-spaced "outports" (small fishing villages) can only be accessed by water or float plane. Add to the alure icebergs floating down eastern Canada's "iceberg alley" and sometimes grounding at entrances to coves and harbors. In addition to the spectacular scenery you'll fall in love with the colorful remote outports and the rugged individuals who live there.

The Canadian Maritimes, including these remote locations, are most definitely within the reach of cruising Great Lakes boaters heading down the St. Lawrance from Lake Ontario. Each year a number of adventurous GLCC cruisers do just that. Whether you plan to follow in their wake or simply learn about this pristine cruising area from someone who's already explored the area, you won't want to miss this Webinar.

We should also mention that skipper and presenter Peter Plumb has also received the prestegious Cruising Club of America's Royal Cruising Club Trophy for his compelling account of this voyage.
