Bringing the boat to its new marina

Sun July 9th
Justin, Vada, and I used my father's motor boat to shuttle us from our wharf to the boat.  Then Justin returned the boat to the wharf and swam back to the boat, squealing from the cold as he jumped in.  We lifted anchor at 11:30 am.

We headed downwind down the Great Bras d'Or Channel towards the Seal Island Bridges, gybing to go under the bridge.   We had 20 to 27 knots of wind.  We traveled at knots and we had a knot of current with us.  We passed Big Bras d'Or amd Black Rock on our starboard and New Cableton on our port.  We saw Bird Islands as we exited the channel.

 Once we reached the ocean and went around the point, the wind dropped to 10 to 15 knots.  We rounded around the point on a broad reach, passing Point Aconi, Alder Point, Little Pond, Big Pond, and Sydney Mines. We entered Sydney Harbour at 3:30 pm, sailing upwind.

We arrived in North Sydney at 5:00 pm.  Mom met us at the wharf to drive us home.
