After passing a swelling ocean, we finally reached the entrance to the Great Bras d’Or Channel, where calmer weather awaited us. We spent the first night just after the entrance in Kelly Cove, in a run-down public wharf whose only advantage was free docking. Having taken CTD cast in the morning, we set off on our further journey, raising the sails. Before reaching the Seal Bridge, we realized that our speed under sail was not enough to overcome the oncoming current. When I turned on the engine, we noticed that its power was barely enough to move at a speed of 2 knots. Ultimately, after passing a narrow Channel, we came to a North shore with white gypsum cliffs – here were the famous plaster mines, which supplied high-quality plaster for finishing houses in New York. Soon after passing the white rocks, the Red Head opened up, which is located on BEINN BHREAGH (in Gaelic “beautiful mountain“), the famous estate of Alexander Graham Bell. After this cape, a lighthouse appeared, marking the entrance to the port of our destination Baddeck, where we would wait out Hurricane Lee.
