We left Halifax on a moderate, beam wind, but the waves were super steep and we only had the jib out, which doesn't steady the boat very much. The boat was rolling so much that we clipped our tethers on in the cockpit. We usually only do that in the ocean at night. Anyhow, once we got around the corner and turned downwind, things settled down. We found a lovely, calm deserted anchorage in Cub Basin at the entrance to St Margaret Bay.

The next day we motored over to Lunenburg, not too far away.
