Day 36 Port-de-Grand-Rivière 42 nm today 902 nm to date

Left at 9am with a send of party of the kind folks who entertained us in Gaspé.

For the first 3 miles it was rolling with the waves a beam but after we turned to travel the 17 nm down the bay the winds and waves were behind us. Still rolling but more tolerable. Winds in the 20s and gusting to high 30s.

Turning around Pointe Pierre we could see the awesome sight of Percé Rock. We were able to sail some of the 5 nm under jib only. Each boat took pics of the other around the famous Rock.

After that the winds and waves calmed so it was an easier passage around Cap d’Espoir and the a straight shot to Port-de-Grand-Rivière unless you count avoiding the lobster pots. As I’m soloing Ramble On went in first and then radioed me instructions for coming in. This is a real fishing port although there are new finger docks for the trawlers. Luckily for for us a few were free for us to use. Once ashore we bought some fresh fish for dinner tonight.
