Georges Basin to Roseway Basin - Day 2

We had to use the engine most of day 2 so it was an easy lounging day for us sailors. Clear skies continued but the air is much colder. Night watches were very cold. I tried to hold off, knowing we still have another 700nm north yet to go before we reach St John's, but gave in by my second watch, 4am to 8am, and put on my heaviest foul weather gear and ski hat. Early this morning we were happy to be sailing again. By dawn, which starts around 4am EST, we could pick up the Racon beacon on approach to Nova Scotia. Shortly after dawn two pilot whales surfaced within throwing distance of the boat. Other sea life sightings include a lone seal far at sea and a shark.
