Halifax towards Canso Bank - Day 5

After a long fantastic lunch (fish & chips made with fresh local haddock) at the RNSYS, we sadly said good-bye to our other crew member who was forced to choose his job over sailing. (We don't pay well.) Soon after, my captain and I departed Halifax with good wind (15kts) that gradually diminished by nightfall and was replaced with thick fog. Between the fog and active commercial ship traffic, watches have been spent carefully monitoring the radar. On the upside, this means getting to spend most of each 4-hr watch period down below at the chart table (location of the radar screen) with the comforts of a padded seat and heat. Thick fog remains but by dawn the wind increased (7kts) allowing us to sail again.
