We crossed Lake SUPERIOR!!!!! Starting at Sinclair Cove, Ontario and ending at Whitefish Point, Michigan. We made the 60 mile crossing in just under 22 hours!
We started at the century old cliff paintings, crossed over the Edmund Fitzgerald and ended at the gorgeous Lighthouse at Whitefish. We could not have asked for better weather on this crossing.
Over the Edmund, we were able to place a wreath of carnations and do a special ceremony. Our documentary will be coming out in November!
The first French explorers approaching the great inland sea by way of the Ottawa River and Lake Huron referred to their discovery as le lac superieur. Properly translated, the expression means “Upper Lake,” that is, the lake above Lake Huron. Kitchi-gummi, a Chippewa Indian translation, signifies Great-water or Great-lake. A Jesuit name, Lac Tracy, was never officially adopted.
With your help, we can make a huge difference in preserving this amazing natural resource that we call home!!! All money raised will be donated to the The Great Lakes Shipwreck Historical Society to help with their on-going underwater research. They operate the Great Lakes Shipwreck Museum at Whitefish Point, and the Historic Weather Bureau Building in Sault Saint Marie, Michigan.
The society for was founded in 1978 by a group of divers, teachers, and educators to commence exploration of historic shipwrecks in eastern Lake Superior
