1905 Tuesday 17 July 2012
A sunny but dreary day as we had to motor sail due to light tail
winds. Yes we could have sailed but in the conditions we would have been
lucky to make 4 knots with cruising chutes, mizzen staysails, the lot.
The poled out genoa helped and for a lot of the day minimum revs, i.e. enough
to get the turbo charger to cut in, gave a steady 6.5 to 7 knots.
We did however make the objective which was to get into Wings Neck,
just before the Cape Cod Canal with enough
light to find a free mooring. A favourable tide all of the way up Buzzards Bay gave a good lift and we found a mooring at
1910. The chart on the previous days entry shows a marker ‘OCC Toby
Baker’. Toby is the OCC port officer for Wings Neck.
