The weather forecast is for the wind to build. If we head straight to Canso the wind and waves will be on the nose. We decide to make a slight diversion and to head for PEI. That way the ride will be a bit more comfortable with the wind and waves on our beam.

 During the afternoon the breeze is up and down but a consistent 15-18 knots. We’re on a port tack with full main and stay sail making 6-7 knots over the ground. We pass Yankee Too a beautiful 115 foot schooner heading north. 

 The chart is showing a firing range off the coast of New Brunswick and we are heading for the keep out zone. We radio the Coast Guard and they confirm that the range is not in use and we don’t need to change course. The wind continues to build as we sail on toward Northumberland Strait. By 2200 it’s blowing a consistent 30 knots on the beam and Boundless is making great time.
