The Fog

17 June 2017 | Shelburne, Nova Scotia
Seemingly never far away, fog is frequent in Nova Scotia (at least on the Atlantic Ocean side).

Cruising Nova Scotia, one needs to always be thinking about what if the fog comes? Do I know my position and what hazards are nearby and ahead well enough? Can my planned port entrance or exit be made safely without being able to see more than a few boatlengths away? Issuma has radar, which is a huge help, but entering an unfamiliar port in fog is nowhere near as pleasant or safe as doing it with good visibility.
