More Weds 16th

We cross Cabot Strait between Newfoundland and Nova Scotia, heading for Cape Breton. The wind is from the south west, 3-4, then dropping and variable. We started with all sail, then motorsail with the mizzen up.

We got to the long and narrow entrance to the Bras d'Or Lakes at around 2 in the morning - dark, but with a bright crescent moon and the stars are out. It's the first time we've been out at night since we crossed from St Pierre to Fermouse, nearly 2 months ago.
