We joined the guys at the Sault

Very early on Friday morning, Deb, Kathy and I headed towards Sault Ste Marie. It was a pretty drive out there, though a bit long. We broke up some of the monotony by stopping at a couple of garage sales and antique stores along the way.

We made it to Sault in the early afternoon, visited with the guys and helped with more offloading of weight and had a great dinner with them before heading in for the night.

Thursday Arrived in Sault Ste Marie

They guys arrived at the Sault on Thursday after a long run from Thunder Bay. They set their sails and basically left them for the entire trip. Unbelievable! It sounds like everyone got some excellent time at the helm and really enjoyed the crossing.

More later,

Tuesday leaving Thunder Bay

I heard from Troy this morning that they were up early and sailing away from Thunder Bay. While we talked their boatspeed when from 6.8 to 7.2 and we were only on the phone for 10-15 minutes! Amazing. They all sounded so excited to have the wind with them. From Thunder Bay they were headed to the Sault and hope to arrive by Thursday.

More to come....

Monday in Thunder Bay

The boys arrived in Thunder Bay on Monday, got settled and went out for a Steak Dinner. Troy said that the marina is nice and that they're having a great time. Tomorrow they head towards the Sault!

WhimSea is away

At about 1:15 this afternoon WhimSea left the dock on her way to the Sault. The guys got a great send off with lots of friends and family there to see them off. Bruce from Apostle's Creed gave many of us a ride out and we circled WhimSea for one last goodbye.

I'll post updates as I get them.
