Lovely morning with quite good winds so finally some sailing. Unfortunately, the wind was mostly from where we wanted to go so after about 2 1/2 hours we downed sails to get on with it. There was a bit of current against us until the river narrowed and then there was a lot of current against us, 2 – 3 knots worth. So a slow and uneventful slog up the river to Chicoutimi.
At the Yacht Club de Chicoutimi is was an exciting docking against 3 knots of current. Boats well tied up to manage the current. Older, dated building but washroom/shower/laundry areas have been recently renovated and very nice. Dinner out at Inter …. this is quite a bustling town with many services and good restaurants.
In the morning the 17′ spring tide had this ramp in reverse incline with water up to this side of the gate !
Nanci and John departed for a few days in Québec City and then home to Kingston. Good crew, the boat and I were well taken care of. My new crew, Debbie, arrived late afternoon.
