We set the alarm for 6 but awoke earlier. It was a rather sleepless night with the rocking and rolling. It finally calmed down after 3 am. It was ok when we slipped the mooring lines off at 06:30. We motored out toward the lighthouse with Amazing Grace behind us. It was a beautiful sunrise this morning.
We noticed another boat in front of us that had left the club this morning too. A few other boats decided to leave on Monday. By time we got to Sandy Point, you could see the fog rising off the ocean in the sunrise.
We rounded Cape Sable Island and the winds picked up to 25 kn NW and we were starting to take them on the nose. The waves were not too high, about a metre but very unpleasant rolling. We rolled in the jib for awhile. Jim tried to catch fresh fish for supper but no luck.
Today we travelled 54.7 nm
