Newfoundland

It took a day and a half to sail from Cape Breton Island to Bay of Islands, Newfoundland. We didn't sail a direct route, as I wanted to decide on our destination depending on the weather forecast. I had considered a closer first stop in Newfoundland (Codroy), but the forecast called for 40knot winds near the area of the closer first stop, so we kept going.

We had favorable winds most of the way, which was great.

As we approached the entrance to the Bay of Islands, the fog alternately covered and uncovered the islands and shores.
