Highlights of this passage include more Dolphins swimming in our bow wave and sighting another pod of Beluga whales. The sea at night is also a highlight as we are now getting a phosphorescent glow in our wake.

Fuel is not easy to come by in this area and in the morning we arrive at Sainte-Anne-des-Monts looking for diesel.

The cruising guide talks about a marina but when we get into the basin all the docks have been pulled for the season. Instead we tie off to a massive seawall and Marty and Neil go on a quest for much needed fuel. Neil enlists the help of a young local with a car and for $20 he ferries them to and from the only gas station in town. It takes several trips but we are able to top up with 100 litres of fuel, Sandwiches from a local bakery and Timmy’s coffee!


Fueling up 1 Jerry Can at a time

We Depart Sainte-Anne-des-Monts by 0900. The wind is from the North West and we can finally sail. By the afternoon the wind is on the beam and were making 7+ knots over the ground.
