Frenchman’s Bay to Brighton: 1000 Islands Cruise Day 1

As is the tradition in our family when starting any trip, we began our 1000 Islands Cruise munching on the Admiral’s unbeatable homemade western sandwiches.

On the first day, we had an uneventful, if at times bumpy, run to Brighton in Presqu’ile Bay, 76 miles in four hours. At Harbour View Marina, we took on 225 litres/59.5 U.S. gallons. Since our last fill-up, we average 5.4 gallons per hour.

At our destination, Presqu’ile Landing Marina, we enjoyed our first meal aboard, Chinese-style stir-fried veggies with fettucine noodles, before crashing early after our first day on the water (with its early start following a late night getting ready).
