We are looking in to trying to do the ‘Shuswap Macshwap’ again this year after having to cancel it last year due to the fire situation. Hopefully we’ll have a better year this time around.
August 6 – 14 2022 The following is a possible itinerary.
Day 1 Aug 6 – Meetup up at Mara Hills golf course dock. Mara Lake. (formerly Hyde mountain) https://marahills.com/golfresort/restaurant
We will likely be launching from the Swansea Pt boat launch on Mara Lake. ( Also known as Windsor Rd) https://www.csrd.bc.ca/services/parks-recreation/parks-listing/windsor-road-boat-launch
There are a number of other launch options, including the town of Sicamous launch in the channel, Old Town Bay public launch. Parking is available near Swansea point at Mara Lake storage. It’s a 5 min drive to the storage yard at the end of Mara Heights Rd.
Dinner at Mara Hills golf course. The views are spectacular. They offer a shuttle up from their docks. We should be OK to stay on the docks overnight. If they make an issue we can go to Turtle Bay.
Day 2 Aug 7 – Masts lowered to go thru the Sicamous channel and proceed to Bughouse Bay on the end of Seymour arm. Spend a couple days paddleboarding, exploring the area, Albas falls etc. Shuswap Lake provincial park extends 100m from shore and they charge $20 a night to anchor. Last year the caretakers were a little unreasonable about the 100 meters and we had to pay. Just a heads up.
Days 3 – 7 Exploring the lake. Anstey arm, Salmon Arm, Blind Bay etc
Day 8 Anchor in Turtle Bay Mara Lake
Day 9 Aug 14 Depart
Keep in mind that a ‘member cruise’ is not a club event and and the ‘host’ is simply extending an invitation to you to join them. You are welcome to join us for all or part of the time.

Count Gemini in. We would prefer the 7-10 day option. Early August is perfect for us.May 6, 2022 at 7:43 pm #10455Linda and Alex BoronowskiParticipant
Linda and I will bring along Impulse. Presently, we are available almost all of August; however a 12th launching may work better if our son and family decide to visit us for the long weekend. We could be available for a total of 10 days.May 7, 2022 at 5:02 pm #10456Doug & DonnaParticipant
Dee Sea’s will tag along for 2 or 3 days, just stay away from the long weekend!May 12, 2022 at 12:54 pm #10467Alan & BelindaParticipant
