The Adventure Begins…

June 25th, 2008 by Walt "The Skipper" Jones

We got up early this morning, and started our adventure, leaving from Southwest Harbor about 7:00 am.  We traveled more than 100 miles with some moderate waves.  We were out of sight of land for much of the trip, and entered Canadian waters this evening around 7:00 pm near Yarmouth, Nova Scotia.  We raised our quarantine flag, and were greeted by four customs officers who cleared us through customs.

Jenny and Kip were a little seasick today, but Quinlan was a trooper, and loved the trip.  We’re confident that as time continues that we all will gain our sea-legs.  Everyone is feeling good again at the dock.

The boat is working great, and there are only minor issues remaining for us to figure out.  We’re raising our Canadian flag, and are excited about having started on our way.
