Days Run – 14 April 2016

It’s blowing pretty good, with more expected overnight tonight.  Captain still has us heading for Nova Scotia – it might be blowing too hard for us to come in tomorrow, but at least tucked in under a weather shore the fetch will be reduced bringing smaller seas and more comfortable conditions.
