The wind again left us last night prompting us to yet again fire up the trusty B&W. We will continue to steam through the day and the forecast is finally looking favourable for finding the NW trade winds sometime tonight or tomorrow. And find them we must as PICTON CASTLE will have to make well more than half of this passage to the Gulf of St. Lawrence under sail.
As there is no ships work going on today many of the off watch are up with ‘make and mend’ personal projects and otherwise enjoying the first Sunday of this passage.
