41:15.64N 72:28.69W With the wind now forecast to come from the north east, where we wanted to go, we changed plans and decided to just get as far east as we could. The first tack took us just west of north and the next just east of south, heading not far off where we had just left from. We tacked back almost immediately as the tide pushed us the wrong way. After a few hours of not making much progress in the right direction the wind dropped and the tide turned in our favour. We decided to make for Duck Island as it would give us a short trip across the Sound tomorrow with more easterlies forecast.
