There was a huge thunder storm predicted for early afternoon so we spent today in Montreal with friends Mike and Ginette. We went to a nice little bistro in Lachine then they took us to a Metro to get provisions. As predicted it rained very hard. We got drenched just walking from the car to the club.
We left RSTYC just before 07:00 with the winds blowing 21 kts. We accomplished 2 locks and 3 lift bridges.
A great day, we even got about 4 hours of sailing, except the ending wasn’t the best. I tried to maneuver into a secluded anchorage and ran aground. Poor Persuasion couldn’t pull herself off. I took the dinghy and secured a halyard and heeled Persuasion over while the Admiral took the helm and backed us out into deeper water. Enough excitement for one day so I dropped the anchor just off the main seaway channel.
Today we travelled 59.7 nm.
