Day 12 Ile de L’Orleans 9 nm today 336 nm to date

Left noonish to stage ourselves 10 miles down river thus saving 2 hours in the morning. Means leaving at 5:30 rather than 3:30. This part of the river is all about leaving at the right time to catch the most favourable current. Wind up around 15 gusting to 22. Ramble On put a jib up but we opted for enjoying lunch. We arrived at our marina on the south side of Île d’Orleans about 2pm. Winds strong abeam down the fairway but on the nose nto th slip — all good. Nice old village spread out along the river.

Nanci Corrigan joined us in QC. John took the pic, we didn’t lose him along the way — at Club Nautique de l’Ile Bacchus.
