Heading Out from Lion's Head


Heading Out from Lion's Head

The water is calm. Very little wind. No sails yet. Only masts visible. Still motoring. Out past the point there may be wind.

The sky is another matter. Is this the calm before the storm? Are we sailing into bad weather and rough seas?

Lion's Head is a beautiful community on the Bruce Peninsula side of Georgian Bay. Nestled between limestone cliffs to the south and north, the town has a beach and well protected harbour. For many sailors, Lion's Head is home port for the four to five months per year that weather permits. Boats go into the water in May and come out again in October.

The location is superb. Enterprising sailors navigate around Georgian Bay to the many ports or north to Tobermory at the tip of the Bruce. The adventurous continue northward to Killarney and onto the North Channel between Manitoulin Island and the mainland. This is not a journey for everyone but the scenery is spectacular.
