Solo in Halifax

Erin, my erstwhile crew for the last 24 days, has now signed off and is on
her way back to Annapolis via Montreal. Thank you Erin and good luck with
everything.
Now I am solo in Halifax with some 760 miles to go until Sylph and I are
back in Annapolis. Unfortunately the prevailing winds are likely to be
headwinds for much of the time, my passage planner reckons 625 miles of it
will be on the nose, so the distance we will have to sail is likely to be
quite a bit more than this. And it looks like Tropical Depression Gabriel
is heading this way so for now I am staying put.
