I left Little Current yesterday with the intent of having a fast run down to Parry Sound or thereabouts. But gybing out through the islands I got a wrap and tore my heavy Spinnaker.

It was windy enough that I didn’t want to use the light (and bigger!) chute so I decided to jib reach over to Tobermory. I was trying reaching with the genoa, but a couple of hours after that the wind picked up and I broke a running backstay.

So I ended up doing the last half under main alone. That was fine. It was blowing about 20 knots from abeam. I took a brief video sailing towards Flowerpot Island. Got into Tobermory around 8:00. Today is a lay day, and Sarah and Samantha are going to pick me up tonight and I’ll get the sail repaired and new runners made this week. Back up here this weekend for some more cruising.

I like it here. Lots of cruising folks coming and going.

Weather is perfect, I’m drying things out today.
