Manicouagan Reservoir (also Lake Manicouagan) is an annular lake in central Quebec, Canada, covering an area of 1,942 km2 (750 sq mi). The lake island in its centre is known as René-Levasseur Island, and its highest point is Mount Babel. The structure was created 214 (±1) million years ago by the impact of a meteorite of five km (three mi) diameter. The lake and island are clearly seen from space and are sometimes called the "eye of Quebec". The lake has a volume of 137.9 km3 (33.1 cu mi)
Myself and 3 other persons will be circumnavigating the lake, starting at Station Uapishka, and ending at the same location, some 200+ kilometers later.
The adventure will start on the 10th of August 2019 and should take 14 days, 4 days travel and 10 days of kayak.

Planned camp sites, and distances.
Things to note
19 to 23 km per day is a low figure, so if weather permits we might do longer distances and change campsite locations.
9 days of travelling allows for 1 day of bad weather without kayaking if schedule is respected.
Fully autonomous journey, we need to plan and bring with us all necessities, food, etc.
