Colin had some great winds through the Johnstone Strait this morning. The low pressure system brought winds from the south instead of headwinds, which allowed him to travel at speeds of 7 knots at times.
When he started this morning at 5 am it was raining and crawling out of his warm cabin was a little less enticing but the favourable conditions made up for that. Colin sailed exclusively throughout the morning and early afternoon, then the winds died and he had to row. Colin’s now anchored off a near island near Port Hardy and is still holding his lead.
