We are sailing down to the Ocean!

After two months of work preparing the sailboat for a voyage, packing our house, and instruments for measurements, finally, the day has come – today, the 16th of July we set sail from the Crysler Park Marina on a long voyage. Hurray!!!

At the first stage of our voyage, we must pass the St. Lawrence River, with all its locks, past Montreal, Quebec City, the Saguenay River, Gulf of St. Lawrence and reach our first goal – Nova Scotia.

Great help in the preparation of the boat was done by Steve, who saw us off, and Frank, who is sailing with us – many thanks to both, dear friends!

Also, my big thanks to the RBR’s staff Ariel, Jon, Tekai, and Minh to help with the last-minute updating of my CTD with the Tridente sensor! You made it!

Thanks to the Crysler Park Marina for keeping us over winter and almost two months in the dock!

Thanks to The Chandlerry staff, for helping us with purchasing equipment and providing a good discount!

Thanks to our family and friends for supporting us all this time!
