s/v Eos

Eos (the Greek goddess of the Dawn) is an owner completed one-off Hollmann FD-12. Her hull and deck were purchased in 1990 and she was launched in 2007. A dream a long time in the making!

Rolling across Lake Erie

03 August 2009 | Port Stanley, Ontario
Sylvia - Windy but beautiful
Sunday, August 2, 2009

We left Leamington, Ontario at 10:30 after a more gentle start to the morning. We motored out to the light off the point so we could have a beam reach to our next port, Erieau, Ontario. It was a lovely day with blue skies and enough wind to motor sail with the full set of sails and make 7.5 knots over the ground. Motor sailing isn't as quiet as just sailing but doing both allows us to make distance. The sails cut down on the diesel usage and the motor gets us up to the speed we need. We have met a couple of boaters who have been going the same route as we. One boat is a power boat and was in Erieau ahead of us and graciously lent us a hand as we docked. We had to turn our 52 footer around in a 75' fairway. Bill had to do some jockeying but did a great job and we nestled comfortably on the wall for the night. We got in at a decent time but it was laundry time so the evening quickly disappeared without much relaxation and down time.

Monday, August 03, 2009

Although the sail to Port Stanley is only about 45 miles from Erieau we decided to get a decent start so we could get in mid-afternoon for a change. We cast of at 00815 and motored at 7.5 knots to the end of the point and then sailed on a very rolly broad reach (the wind was off the stern quarter but not directly behind us - for our non-sailing friends) with the jib reefed down. The wind was from the WSW at 18-22 knots by the time we got to the turn into Port Stanley. It was a carnival ride for a little while as we turned a beam to the rollers and the wind in order to get into the harbor entry. Bill discovered that a few modifications to his work room tie downs are necessary. But this was the time to find out when it was only a couple of good rolls and then we were in calm waters. That is certainly much better than having it happen when we would have to sail many more hours in the rollies and have things churned up by the constant rolling.

We had to motor in circles for 20 minutes waiting for the lift bridge to open on the half hour. Then we had our worst docking experience to date. Between the river current and the wind we got crosswise in the river and ended up finally docked facing out when our intent was to go in bow forward. But again there was some fine help at the marina and we got her turned around and safely moored with only one dink to the hull. Fun time.

We hadn't done lunch so we got her tied down securely and then went up the street to a nice little place with a lovely garden for al fresco dining. Had some cool wine and beer a lovely lunch/dinner and are now settling in for the night. Port Stanley is a lovely little town and we are moored right in the heart of town. It would be a fun place to take a lay day but we need to keep moving. Tomorrow we are of to Port Dover, Ontario.

About:
Bill is a retired but hopefully will be again a fine artist who quit painting in 1991 to spend full-time finishing the hull and deck we had purchased. Now 18 years later he is ready to be co-captain as we we sail out the Great Lakes to become full-time cruisers. [...]
