Hi all,

Made here from Tenant's in 27 hours. Unfortunately, our start was not quite a good as planned. Poor Castellina got a lobster pot line wrapped around the prop. We towed her back into the Muscle Ridge channel where they were able to anchor a bit better out of the swell and a diver from Charlie's Marina in Rockland came out and cleared the line.

We restarted our trip about noontime and it started out not to bad with a nice 15kt southerly breeze on the beam and clear skies. But as expected, as we neared Cape Sable, the good ol' NS fog rolled it. Not like the pea soup Maine fog but that heavy, chunky kind only NS can produce! Made our way through with only one small tangle with a fishing boat. Everything else went fine. Castellina made it in about an hour later no worse for wear. Making landfall here at the local yacht club and clearing in with customs was delightful. Very friendly and helpful folks.

Will be headed off to the La Have River YC tomorrow for a little stay. Hope to visit Covey Island boatworks to see how their latest boatbuilding project has progressed from last year.
