Has anybody kited there yet?

I just read an article about the place in a boating magazine and it sounds like it has potential. It has overnight accomodations and a fairly regular ferry schedule. I'm thinking it might be a good place to spend a couple of days with a good east or west forcast.

Well, Pelee the hidden gem. I have been to this piece of paradise all of my life. The fishing is top notch and it is a fun spot to party. Last summer i brought along my 16m on a fishing trip to the islands from my cottage. The fishing started to suck, but the wind was filling in. I rode off the shore of Pelee out to a couple un-inhabited islands with my neighbor following in his boat. All i could think about was how good this place must get on any wind direction, simply move to the side of the island with the right direction of wind. The crossing has to be done, it is 16miles from Kingsville to the island. I could round up some support boats. In high season there is 2 ferrys that run. In the start of the spring/summer the ferry runs from Leamington, then in July(I think) it departs from Kingsville. It is a 1hr or so crossing time. The bigger ferry does have a bar on it. Cars and boats, etc can be loaded on the ferry as well. There are a couple camp grounds, B & B's, one hotel, one bar,one winery(excellent wines) one beer store and 2 cops. This place is a blast on any holiday weekends. The un-inhabited islands are a blast to camp on. I have done this a bunch of times with my dad back in the day and it is like being in the middle of an ocean. Check out this link http://www.pelee.com/ . I plan on camping there this summer a few times. It is a whole other world.
Cheers,
Brent :twisted:
Timmy, i will send you a picture to post of one of the deserted islands.
