Day 62 Baddeck Bras d’Or lakes Cape Breton 30 nm today 1403 nm to date

After a fine pancake breakfast on Ramble On we left the dock about 9:30. Linda joined Finnish Line 2.0 as crew today and kept the sails well trimmed as we clipped along under variable winds and beautiful sunny skies. Passed under the Barra Strait bridge … the operator is a real pro and has the bridge opening timed to the boat’s pace so no time is lost.

Arrived in Baddeck mid-afternoon. It’s a very pretty setting with many boats anchored out or on mooring balls. Tarja had arrived by car and had enjoyed a good local lunch in time to meet us on on the dock. Very hot here in the high 20s with a feels like in the 30s. Gives us empathy for the suffering folks back home. At dinner spoke briefly with a chap from Kingston whom I met playing bass in the LaSalle Adult Band. It IS a weird world.
