Tobermory to Wingfield Basin

Owen diagnoses and fixes the engine. We are headed for Parry Sound due E across Georgian Bay.  Tonight we hop to Wingfield Basin, an anchorage just 15 miles to the E which will shorten our crossing.  

We glide through crystal clear waters over the Niagara Escarpment, where the rocks under our hull drop sharply to 1000 feet.  This is the same rock formation that Niagara Falls flows over, only here its almost all covered with water.

We enter through a narrow cut into a perfectly protected anchorage and drop the hook next to the wrecked steam tug GARGANTUA, built in 1919 and lost in 1953.
