Don't try this at home!
05 August 2009 | Tobermoray to Port Elgin
Mary/sunny and cool
We had the most difficult sail we have ever experienced on our way to Port Elgin. We clocked winds at 37 knots, which is close to 50 mph! The waves were at least 12 feet! Not our idea of fun! The national weather forecast did not indicate that any of this was going to happen, otherwise we would never have set out. On the way our dinghy flipped, which slowed us down trermendously! It ended up being a 12 hour trip! We are leaving Port Elgin today for Goderich as we make our way down the Candian side of lake Huron. The weather seems to have calmed down and looks like we will have a high pressure system in the area for the next few days.
