Off this morning on Finnish Line 2.0 with crew John Corrigan plus Ramble On with Linda and Chris to do the Down East Circle (down the St Lawrence to Nova Scotia, New England, New York City and home via the Hudson and the Erie Canal). Family and lots of fellow sailors to say goodbye. Motored until the Hill Island bridge and then sailed jib only mostly in the low 7s but hit 8.4. WInds in the 20s with gusts well into the 30s.Now in Brockville. Special thanks to Tarja, Simon, Tristan and Leyla for all the help in getting the boat ready.
