Geocache Placed – Regatta Bay (Franklin Island)

Parry Sound Power and Sail Squadron’s third GeoBayCache has been placed and confirmed in the Regatta Bay area on Franklin Island. It’s officially Cache #3.

The cache coordinates are:

This is the same as:
45º 23.150′
-080º 20.080′

Depending on whether you are using a Degrees or Degrees/Minutes format.

There is no government dock in Regatta Bay so you will need to anchor or pull up on shore to find the cache. Wet feet are a possibility. Come August you should find Cardinal flowers marking the general area. The cache itself is not really hidden. The idea of the program is to provide boaters with an opportunity to explore new spots in the Georgian Bay Biosphere.

There seems to be lots of water this year, so there shouldn’t be too many surprises if you follow the charted routes. But be careful on the water and on the islands, you are likely to come across poison ivy and the protected Eastern Massasauga Rattlesnake. Neither should be a concern if you keep your eyes and ears open and your hands to yourself.
