Hi all. Several months ago we were asked to submit an article for the Canadian Power and Sail Squadrons Spring 2016 edition of The Port Hole. The piece entitled “Reflections on a Simpler Life”, highlights our adventure aboard R.E.D. last summer.
We are proud to finally be able to share it with you in its entirety in both French and English as it appeared in the April 2016 edition of Canadian Yachting and L’Escale
We hope you enjoy.
In anticipation of this summer’s little adventure aboard R.E.D.
I created a map for our intended route.
The map will appear at the end of each post at the bottom of the page
and as we go we will be adding locations and pictures.
I have already added some locations but we are open to opinions
of where to stop
and what to see along the way.
Our route will be as follows:
1.Montreal to Sorel, Quebec.
2. Then we will head down the Richelieu River to Lake Champlain.
3. From Lake Champlain we will continue on down the Hudson River to New York City.
4. After departing New York we will head back north then cut across the first part of
the Erie Canal and hook up to the Oswego Canal
to eventually reach Lake Ontario.
5. from Lake Ontario we will retrace part of our path from last summer
sailing the Thousand Islands, then back home along the Saint Lawrence Seaway.

or add your comments at the end of this post.
If you or someone you know have travelled all or part of this route,
we would love to hear from you.
