When I was a youth a few decades ago, I watched one come from between South Bass and Kelleys Island and pass in front of Kelleys Island to the Marblehead Dock. Maybe I saw that twice in my life, but no more than that.

Sure, the boats race to the docks, locks, etc. Not as much as when there were 150 boats, but the captains still don't want to be behind a slow boat in the rivers, or have to go to anchor while waiting for a dock.

The Joe Thompson heading to Marblehead from the East, and the Manitowoc heading to Marblehead from the west[Toledo ]. The Manitowoc took a short cut between Put in Bay and Pelee Island.. I have not seen a boat come into Marblehead from the west. It seems they all take the deep water route to the North of Pelee Island. Joe Thompson won !! Thanks for any input..
