Genuine Risk Delivery- 4 Lakes, two Rivers, and one Canal down.....

Thirty Degrees of Cant in the Welland Canal

Yesterday was an exciting day aboard the Genuine Risk, our 5th day of the trip. After a windy upwind trip on Lake Michigan, a windy downwind trip on Lake Huron, and a rainy trip through the Detroit river (I did get to wave to Grandma though!) and a rainy trip across Lake Erie we were ready to test our math and cant the keel to fit the 125 foot mast under the 116 foot bridges of the Welland Canal. Success. It was a great trip through the Welland Canal, and we are now in the wonderfully friendly town of Kingston, Ontario, ready to start the rest of our trip through the St. Lawrence Seaway tomorrow.
