CS34 Trident to Kingston Yacht Club

Left Trident Yacht Club a little before 8am.

We really need to get back to Whitby before Sunday, so the plan was to get as far as we could east in the inside route.

There was not much wind to speak of, so we just motored down the Bateau Channel.  There sure are some nice homes along here!

From a distance we saw this:

Then when we got closer, we were greeted by Shrek on a dock:


We passed the Howe Island cable ferry:

We toured the Kingston waterfront, and went into the Kingston Yacht Club, arriving just before 11am.  We needed fuel to head further east.  There was a lineup for fuel, so we went on the visitor's dock, and went into Kingston for lunch and quick provision.

We had lunch at our favourite restaurant in Kingston

When we got back from lunch, the winds were howling 20+ from the west (right to where we were going) and there were 3-4ft waves.  We decided to stay the night.  Fueled up, got ANOTHER pump out,  and took a slip on the end of the docks:

We headed into town with the dog to do some more shopping. Got some corn at the farmer's market in the town square:

Getting back to the boat, it was race night.  KYC has about 20 boats going out for race night.  In addition, they have a fleet of 15 Sharks going out.  All them don't have motors, so they sailed right past Still Time coming into their slips.

School of Sharks
We did a third trip into town, and down by the waterfront park by Confereration Basin, there was a trailer setup selling line (The Ropeman).  Ended up purchasing four new teal 5/8" 25ft dock lines for Still Time.  The existing lines were mismatched, hard, and worn out.  Nice purchase for $120.

Also picked up a spool of small diameter chord for shrink wrapping for $20.

Stopped at Kingston Sail Loft to pickup some sail slide bolt rope snaps.

When we got back to the boat, there was a dude doing Yoga on a paddle board in the waves.  Camera battery was dead, so no photos.  It was amazing seeing him do all the Yoga poses in the waves.

It was a little rocky on the boat, but we slept well!
