After a sail with a lot of fog, followed by some beautiful sunny tailwinds, we sailed into Liverpool Bay, in the Canadian maritime province of Nova Scotia.

International Waters
Mon Jun 14 18:01:00 EDT 2010

We have left the USA and are back in international waters, so I take down the USA courtesy flag that we have been flying while in the USA.

Later, when we reach Canadian waters, I will put up a yellow "Quarantine" flag which indicates we are coming from another country and requesting clearance to enter Canada.

Fisherman's Backyard
Sun Jun 13 18:01:00 EDT 2010, Provincetown, Cape Cod, MA

Provincetown is a pleasant seaside resort and fishing town. It has a port that is protected from all directions. We had no plans to stop until the water pressure tank (which is part of the system that makes drinking water come out of the faucets) rusted out while we were in Cape Cod Bay. We made a phonecall to a marine hardware store in nearby Provincetown to see if they had any suitable manual pumps (there is less to go wrong with a manual system) to work around it. They said they had a wide selection of pumps like that, so we sailed to Provincetown.

The person in the store who said they had pumps was wrong, so we are drinking water from the supply of bottled water that is aboard, and we got some fresh food and a few other things in Provincetown while we were there. The water in the main drinking water tanks is still available (just less conveniently) if we run out of bottled water.

Cape Cod Canal
Sat Jun 12 18:01:00 EDT 2010, Cape Cod, MA

Ted steers the boat in the Cape Cod Canal. The Cape Cod Canal cuts the corner of Cape Cod, letting boats, barges and smaller ships avoid the shallow waters around Nantucket.

Storm over Stonington
Fri Jun 11 18:01:00 EDT 2010, Stonington, CT

We got a bunch of things done on the boat while waiting out the gale that was offshore. While there wasn't much wind in the harbor, the clouds looked interesting.

Thu Jun 10 18:01:00 EDT 2010, Stonington, CT

Offshore, there was an easterly gale coming, so we went into the picturesque harbor of Stonington, CT and sat out the gale at anchor.

Looking Up
Mon Jun 7 18:01:00 EDT 2010, Long Island Sound

After an all-too-brief visit to New York, and a short delay sitting out a cold front on the other side of the harbor, Issuma set off again. Aboard are myself, Chris, Gabriela and Ted. We motored around the Battery, through the East River to Long Island Sound, where we set sail on a beautiful day.

In the picture, Gabriela is filming the view of the sails aloft, ahead of Issuma is the marconi schooner Summerwind, heading northeast like we are.

Congratulations on getting underway.
Here's a shot of Summerwind under full sail just off Kings Point, her home port.
