The Famous 100 Mile Cruise

For the first time since 1958 this Saturday August 18th, 2012 the 100 Mile Cruise will be recreated with the RMS Segwun and the Wenonah II tracing the original route of the SS Sagamo steamship. There will be over 100 other historical wooden boats accompanying the steamships on their journey on the Big 3 Muskoka Lakes . The proceeds of this event are being donated to the Canadian Cancer Society. More info here

    I’v always liked that photo of the Segwun it has to be my favorite photo of the ship. I’v rode by the Segwun and Wenonah II on sea-doo a couple times and it was always fun waving to everyone on board and having them wave back.

    The Segwun and Wenonah travel by my cottage every day during the summer. It’s a highlight of our weekend, and our cottage guests always appreciate learning about the history of the boats and the lakes. I hope it continues for many years.
