After Noon Day 2, Lake Ontario 300

We are holding are own in our fleet. We are happy with the results. Much better than last year. We did not expect to come near the top 5 of this division. Last year we only beat one boat in our division, if we do better than that, and arrive before Tuesday at 7PM, I am will be very happy with that. Not sure we will be able to without our spinnaker. We are now rounding the land that jets out around Rochester. The wind will completely die by this evening, and think we will try to stay close to shore, and try to play the thermals. The wind is 15 knots from the North West.

Kate helped helm the boat for a few hours, and is a great crew member. Kate says hi to her mom & dad in Ottawa, and Ryan too! Martin did not have to use the foul weather gear his wife bought him yet. It truly is a great adventure.
