Packinair,

That's the Toledo Sailing Club (historical name only, only 2 or 3 sailboats there now out of 100 or so), right across the river from you and glassdave. What are your rides?

Default Pottahawk Island - Second Sunday every July

To all boaters of the south, just thought I'd give some insight on the little Canadian sandbar making news in Lake Erie. The sandbar is named Pottahawk Island. Every second Sunday in July 10's of 1000's of boater show up and tie up for one of the wildest parties I've ever been to. Looking at Lake Erie, this sandbar is protected by Long Point, quite visible by looking at a pic of the lake. It is across from Erie PA. Boats will tie up side by side for 2 miles, and there is 5 to 7 rows deep. Tunes are cranked, vball nets are up, barges have bands, and everyone walks with open alcohol with no major threat from law enforcement. I've been to put-in-bay for Christmas in July, and it is comparable in a sense, but at Pottahawk, everyone walks in knee deep water. It is July 8th this year.

Obviously, great times at Put in Bay and Kelley's, but where are all the great sandbar times in Western Erie?

Erie Desire, Yes you can still get into the hot hole near the coal burning plant. I was just in there this past weekend with my flat deck Scarab, No problems with water depth.

Default Pottahawk Island

This little Canadian sandbar is one of the greatest places in Lake Erie. Every weekend it is hopping, but the second Sunday every July the event is named The Pottahawk Piss-up. 12,000 boaters showed up last year, Girls Gone Wild the year before. People spend the night, or show up 8am to get a good spot on the bar. Boats are lined up for 2.5 miles and set 5-7 boats deep. It is across from Erie PA. The Saturday night before is wild also in Turkey Point, where many boaters tie up at a local bar in the marina. An event to be witnessed by all sometime in your life. I usually don't miss a weekend out there!
