Nordica 20 - Delivery Trip - Whitby via the Trent/Severn Canal.
|After having purchased the Nordica 20, I never did give it a name, I needed to make a decision on how to her her to Whitby. I could truck her or I could motor her down the Trent/Severn Canal. The Trent/Severn Canal connects Lake Ontario at Trent to Port Severn on Georgian Bay.|
|The decision was made to deliver the boat trip via the
Trent/Severn during our vacation. So off we went, the three of us,
my ladyfriend, our dog, Loki, and myself. I had bought the charts
and we were going to buy a two week pass for the waterway as we thought we
could do it in a fortnight.
Penetanguishene to Waubashene
The first leg of the trip was to sail from Penetanguishene to Port Severn. The trip out of Penetanguishne There is a bridge just before Port Severn and the chart showed that we would have a foot to spare but when we got there it looked way to close for my liking so I detoured to Waubashene where there is a small marina that caters mainly to fishermen.
