Meldrum Bay to Gore Bay
After having had the rare cruising combo of a meal at a restaurant and hot showers the night before, we were all feeling fresh and ready to continue eastward. We left tiny Meldrum Bay at about 6am and quickly hoisted the sails for what was to be an excellent close reach all the way to Gore Bay. Winds were generally 10-15 knots, but gusted to 20 when we weren’t in the lee of the many points on Manitoulin Island’s north shore. The boat hurried along at between 6 and 7 knots and 20 degrees of heel for most of the ride.
