East Grant Island
After restocking with salads and vegetables at the local store in Thessalon, I pushed off into a calm lake with not much wind.
As placid as it looked, I was able to maintain an average of 5 knots over the 12 nautical miles using my giant yellow genoa. It was on my fastest point of sail at about 90 degrees to the wind.
It is a beautiful island so I got off and clambered over all the fractured granite and through the thick birch forest to be rewarded by lots of monarch butterflies.
Tomorrow I hope to sail 20 miles east of here to the Turnbull Islands.
