Newport to Georges Basin - Day 1

140nm. Light winds kept us from making our daily mileage goal (165nm or more) but it has been an enjoyable and easy first 24-hours. Plus, thankfully, no fog. Winds lightened further during the night forcing us to engine. The light winds are the result of a high-pressure ridge over the Gulf of Maine, which we have decided to engine through. Due to estimated fuel consumption, we will probably need to make landfall in Nova Scotia. No interesting wildlife sightings to report.
