Little-known shipwreck beckons divers

  #

Ontario is known as diving heaven for well-preserved wooden shipwrecks. But until recently, the most accessible "decent" wrecks for divers in the largest population centre all required full-day or weekend excursions to centres such as Kingston or Tobermory.

That started to change in the spring of 2002, when details of the Port Dalhousie wreck were unveiled at a diving symposium in St. Catharines.  more...

Team NZ to fix black boats for regatta

  #
Team New Zealand will compete in an international regatta next year with the black boats that failed so miserably in the America's Cup.

Team New Zealand's managing director, Grant Dalton, said an independent study was about to be conducted into why NZL81 and NZL82 failed.

Once it had been established what was wrong with the boats, they would be repaired and Dalton hoped to have them back out on the Hauraki Gulf by February.   more...

SPECTATOR SPORT

  #

In order to launch their campaign for the America's Cup 2007, Team Alinghi and Oracle BMW Racing will race for the Moet Cup on San Francisco Bay from September 15 to September 20, on a shortened but very windy course that will introduce a number of new concepts.

The regatta will be raced on very short courses and the yachts will complete "out and back" circuits in under one hour, which should guarantee an exciting view for the many numbers of spectators expected. Unlike the America's Cup, the finish of each race will be on a close reach rather than downwind. This will allow spectators to experience the event in the best conditions and be as close as possible to the boats.   more...

Ancient Lake May Have Disrupted Climate

  #
A massive freshwater lake that covered much of southern Canada 8,200 years ago burst through its ice dam and flooded into the Atlantic, disrupting ocean currents and causing a climate change that chilled the Northern Hemisphere for 200 years, a study suggests.

The ancient body of water, called Lake Agassiz, was formed by ice dams that blocked drainage from the vast central plains of Canada during the fading centuries of the last ice age. The lake once was more than twice the size of the current Great Lakes and contained more than 39,000 cubic miles of water.   more...

We know much less about what's under the earth. Now, a team of geologists from the Great Lakes states is working to map the resources under the ground.  more...

High bacteria counts keep 2 beaches in Cleveland closed for another day

  #

Edgewater Beach will reopen today, but Cleveland will keep Villa Angela and Euclid beaches closed one more day because of high bacteria counts.

The city closed the three Lake Erie beaches Friday as a precaution because several area treatment plants released more than 60 million gallons of untreated sewage during last week's power blackout. The sewage either went directly into Lake Erie or was carried there by the Cuyahoga River and other lake tributaries. more...
