Today at 3:30. Upbound in lock 1 at St. Catherines. Locking through with a small Pearson or Grampian, and a BIG cruiser. See they ditched the outboard from the Erie Canal, got the rig back up, so must have the keel all bolted back on. If I had been an hour or 2 earlier I might have seen them approaching on Lake O. down below Port Weller. Don't know if they sailed or motored over.

You are right on the spelling. Anything else?

Like I said, Lock 1, at the end of Eastchester in St. CathArines

 
Front page of SA says "as she transited the Welland Canal on her way into Lake Ontario to ready for the Chicago-Mackinac race." I have live in Toronto and sailed Lake Ontario for over 45 years and I do not believe the start of this great race is on Lake Ontario. From the posts above it appears that she is transiting the Welland Canal FROM Lake Ontario to Lake Erie and up to Lake Huron and then down Lake Michigan to Chigago. Just wanted to clear this up.

BTW...What's she rate? Logical question as she is racing other boats on handicap?

Your correct on your geography. We are dealing with some Americans that haven't seen the Great Lakes kinda of like some of our western politicians that haven't figured which way the Niagara river flows. For un initiated they are headed up bound in the canal FROM Lake Ontario TO Lake Erie then UP the Detroit River Across Lake St Clair then UP the St Clair River then UP Lake Huron ACROSS the Straits of Mackinaw then DOWN Lake Michigan, that being said no wonder SAILORS HIT PARKED ISLANDS IF YOU DON'T KNOW YOUR WATERWAYS.

She rated 573.4 under ORR6 when they did NPT-BDA in '10. The rest of the ratings are on the scratch sheet. No IRC rating hat I could find.

Whoops you're right. They all blur together.
