Saturday 3 Hours into the Lake Ontario 300 Race
We found our way, and are catching the fleet. My guess is we are about mid fleet. but still behind our division. We are cruising at 8 to 9 knots, and hit a top sailing speed of 10.5 knots. The FIS tracking has not send a signal for over 2 hours, and is showing we have not rounded the first mark. However we are well off the Toronto Beaches, almost to the scarborough bluffs.
Some of the crew is having a cat nap on the rail, had our first drinks and really enjoying this perfect sailing weather. God has been good to us with this wind. 15 to 23 knots, right on a broad reach to a beam reach, which is what this boat loves, and we are sailing directly the rhum line to Main Duck Island. The GPS is saying we will arrive in 12 hours at this speed. But I know that won’t happen the wind will die down and shift tonight. But lets enjoy it while we can
