Brockville Ontario -Turn Around Point

Twenty days on the water brought us to Brockville Ontario. We decided that this would be the spot at which we turned around if we wanted to make it home within the month of holidays we had booked. We were 216 nm from our home port in Hamilton. We tied up at the Brockville YC and met some friends from home who were in the area to dive the wrecks.
When diving and sailing in this area you need to keep in mind that this very narrow river is the main shipping port that leads to the Atlantic Ocean. As such the freighter traffic can be quite steady. It is not for the faint of heart.

The divers from the boat on the right could be very near where the freighters are.
