Funday the 8th July

We left Rockland Maine 0545 this morning bound for Halifax. Weather was indifferent. Sometimes foggy other times clear After getting “off” soundings we started across the Bay of Fundy. The wind got up to around 30kts but was just forward of the beam. So Staysail out and off we went at 12 kts. Strong wind against tide and 2m seas made it uncomfortable for some that stayed up late.. But it is now Calmer. We are now approaching Sable Island at the Southern tip of Nova Scotia. Again fog banks. We expect 20kts on the nose for the last 120nm to Halifax so we will be easing up to keep the pitching and pounding down. So all is good on board with Carrot and Ginger soup follwed by an Italian Sausage Spagetti for dinner!
