Vinalhaven 2nd July 2016
The Cold front did indeed arrive at the same time as Landfall. 40 Knots of Wind, constant sheet lightning and torrential rain made navigation extremely challenging. However from inside the boat there was nothing but calm and quiet. only the instruments told the story and helped us through the night..
We arrived in Rockland at 0230 and Anchored off the town. Morning broke with a West wind in the high teens and no sign of last nights weather. After a quick tidy up we picked up anchor and cruised over to Fox Thorofare where we are anchored. A bit squeezed in but we left plenty of space for the car ferry.!
A beautiful sunset tonight and a calm anchorage… Time for a quiet sleep.
