What a difference a day makes!! We left around 9:15 with a wind on our nose and seas 3-5 ft. but the wind increased. With the waves and the wind increasing and more than 4 hours before the next harbour we decided to turn back and wait the weather out in port. Lesson learned.
This next leg is around the Gaspe where the ports at fewer and further away. Should take about 4 more days to get to the place (near Perce Rock) from which we leave to cross the gulf for Cape Breton.
