Attention Hunter owners
Tim Feagans of Empire Yacht Sales would be delighted to host the 2013 Lake Ontario Hunter Sailing Association South Shore Rendezvous. The weekend of August 2-4 would work well for us.

"Beginning at 1500 hrs. on
Thursday, August 30, and continuing until 1500
hrs. on Friday, the outflow from Lake Ontario
has been increased to 6900 m3/s. This increase
is being done to raise levels near Montreal and
thereby enable a ship en-route to safely reach
the Port of Montreal. The water level at the
Port of Montreal has been declining and is
currently about 1.1 m below seasonal average.
For the coming week, starting Saturday, the Lake
Ontario outflow is expected to be 6500 m3/s,
which is 160 m3/s more than the amount specified
by the regulation plan. "
