Under the cover of fog we sailed our way into Rose Bay this morning, tacking about 5 times before dropping anchor at approx 1130. Wouldn’t you know, as soon as we did the fog lifted long enough to see land – where yesterday there was none, we are surrounded once again. The rest of today will be spent getting the ship ready for sailing into her berth in Lunenburg harbour tomorrow. For those of you at home, see you soon!!
