Sailing to the Atlantic Ocean

After four days spent on the amazing Magdalene Islands, we decided to sail to Nova Scotia and the Atlantic Ocean. Since the wind was light, we decided to go through the Cape North, which we had previously visited during our road trip along the Cabot Trail. We spent the first night at an anchorage near the Cape North – hurray, we reached Nova Scotia! The night passed under the lull of the swell, and the next morning we set off further south, crossing the border between the Gulf of St. Lawrence and the Atlantic Ocean. After a day of sailing in the Atlantic Ocean, we reached Ingonish Harbour, where we docked at an abandoned marina.

Nova Scotia is ahead!
