The Strait of Pyre is a 70 mile long stretch of water that connects the Sea of Marnopyre with the Maingulf. It is 20 miles wide at its narrowest point. It separates the Three Rivers continent from the northern half of Forosth, known locally as Stanov. The islands of the Three Sisters lie at the southern end of the Strait, and the islands of Hirione Island and Ginotal Island, which lie near the city of Jelotnar.
Unlike the Straits of Szarn, it is a fairly placid length of water, with no real navigation hazards. Pirates and other undesirables do not roister that far north due to the diligence of the navies of both Jelotnar and the city of Tarxiu across the strait in Stanov.
