Yes but no limits on the big lakes.
You can run Lk Eire in a day if you want at +25knts. But certainly not at trawler speed especially if it's a bit on the rough side you could be weathered for 2-3 days.

Parts of the Canals are 5 mph so 4.34 knots.

That's about average for a TF thread.

OCD and others. Looking at the agenda and talking to others who have been to their gatherings, it seems the majority of topics are geared toward those in early planning stages and often without a boat yet. Still in the three days, there are three topics that would interest us-Georgian Bay, Side Trips, Michigan side of Lake Michigan. To me that's typical for most any type seminar gathering I've attended and if one was conveniently in the area would make it worthwhile. For the beginner, less experienseced than the OP, there are many interesting topics.

Now, I've talked to several who have been to the Fall Rendezvous and they talk about the camaraderie, seeing those you've previously seen while looping, and sharing experiences as the best part of the Rendezvous and highly recommend it.

Seems as would geographically and seasonally make sense that the Spring is geared toward the pre-looper and the Fall toward the post-looper.

I look at the agenda and think it must be by design, the topics in the Popular Hall target someone with less knowledge and experience than the OP, while the topics in the York/Stratford Hall could be of interest to most attendees.
