Sackets Harbor Itinerary:

Dead Man Bay to Sackets Harbor

Leaving Kingston, pass through the Lower Gap west of Kingston Harbor and enter Lake Ontario once again. Pass Simcoe Island on your port and from FlG K9 at (44°10.20N, 76°35.86W), it is 16.5 nm to a waypoint NE of Galloo Island (43°57.26N, 76°21.96W). From then, follow an easterly heading to Sackets Harbor (43°56.95 N, 76°07.27W). We can find a slip at Navy Point Marina in Sackets Harbor or anchor in the harbor.

Sackets Harbor is a pretty place during the summer and has many activities. It is also a good half-way mark to use in heading across the lake. If the day is especially nice for sailing and it's early enough, it might be a better idea to head directly to Oswego for the evening. It's always a better choice to pick the good sailing days for crossing Lake Ontario.
