Whitney Bay, Drummond Island to Ricketts Harbor, Cockburn Island, ON

Nice sailing day, steady at 15.  After lunch wind switched from 15 to 25 steady, in about 5 minutes.  Twenty-three, gusting to 30. Ripping alone on jib alone (after Happy wisely suggesting dropping the main). Nicely balanced helm, beam-reaching at 7 knots, touching 8.  Had to turn north directly into the strong winds to make final approach to this new harbor for us.  Luckily it was deep enough!  Long, tiring day.
