Geocache Description:

The Fleetwing

PLEASE REPLACE THE CACHE EXACTLY AS YOU FOUND IT! On Sept. 26, 1888, the Fleetwing departed Menominee, Michigan, with a load of lumber, sailing for Chicago. Heading up Green Bay, the schooner sailed into a northwest gale. Searching for the passage through Deaths Door to Lake Michigan, she turned into the wrong harbor and struck ground. Several days later, another gale pounded her to pieces on the rocks.

Today the Fleetwing is a popular attraction for divers, snorkelers, and kayakers. The site lies in shallow, protected water with excellent clarity, and is easily accessible. Caution and common sense should be used before diving/swimming to this site.
