Stuart Island back to Port Sidney


Sunday November 30, 2008
Lv: Stuart Island 1100 Very thick pea soup fog.
Arrive: Port Sidney Marina 1315 Check in with Canada Customs (clearance # 2008-335-0110)
Log 1336
We almost turned back right at the outset because we couldn't see anything. But then decided this would be good practice using our radar in combination with our GPS. Since there is no wind, we are motoring all the way, I was out on deck listening for fog horns from passing freighters and tugs. Our visability was about 1/4 mile most of the way, but closer to Sidney the fog started to lift. Of course, I did not waste my time standing around doing nothing. The deck was very nice and clean by the time we arrived in Sidney!
