I am going to make it a short entry today as we are in fog in Cabot Strait. I expect the shipping density to be relatively high here so I need to keep a good lookout, both visually and aurally. As I am likely to hear something well before I see it I do not want to run the little generator as it might mask a ship's fog signal, and the computer uses up battery power which I need to conserve for their most important function, navigation lights at night.

Still plodding along, close hauled port tack. Expecting a change tomorrow morning.

All is well.

Alright, I will just continue with my work. Miaow for now.
