{Stus-List} Headed for the North Channel

Hi Ross,
Two beautiful spots, Cove Island and Tobermory.  I love to sit and watch the boat traffic at Tobermory.  Could spend all day.  
Except that they are not part of the North Channel and to go there from the North Channel you need to travel at least 55 nm. maybe more to reach Tobermory - and you need to return.

The trip from Killarney or Little Curent to Tobermory is across open water - you can travel close to Manitoulin and Fitzwilliam islands but it can get rough and there is only two anchorages, Club and Rattlesnake, and I am not comfortable with Club.
A friend of mine whose dad is a Great Lakes "laker" captain tells me that her dad thinks the area around Lonely Island is one of the more dangerous corners of the Great Lakes.  
If you head back to Michigan from Tobermory you again have open water and a fetch of at least 60 nm maybe more.

What's wrong with a side trip to Cove Island and Tobermory 
(Which my boat is named after.)

Hi Barry,
You basically hit all the spots.  There is a 
  new # 2005 strip chart, i.e. detailing the passage from Killarney to Little 
  Current or vice versa. 
There is also a new chart or rather charts that 
  replaces the ancient North Channel chart around Little Current and McBean 
You can now visit the Bay of Islands.  The 
  approach buoys to Baie Finne have changed, I think.  
You may want to 
  do similar as last time on the way in, i.e. Blind River, Beardrop Harbbour in 
  the Whalesback, Little Detroit, Oak Bay or The Eagles or the Benjamines, 
  McBean Channel, Little Current, Baie Finne, Killarney - the fish restaurant 
  still exists but has gotten pricey but it is still very good.

On the 
  way back I would do Little Current, Gore Bay and Meldrum Bay.  Gore Bay 
  is very nice to visit and everything is in walking distance. 

I don't 
  have the charts at the cottage but am going to the boat after and will get 
  some of the chart numbers.  
I will be leaving for the North CHannel 
  on July 7th but most likely only get to Killarney, Baie Finne, Little Current 
  and maybe the McBean Channel.  Returning around July 16th or 17th to 
  Lion's Head.
