|Bridge over Lakeshore under construction|
The flooding was apparent going out the channel; this is a public parkette that is flooded over:
See you later Oakville Club:
Can't wait until next year!
Got out of the channel and put the main up, and unfurled the jib.
Winds were slightly aft of the beam at 9 knots, but could only do about 4 knots sailing, so I furled the jib in and hoisted the spinnaker:
Without the motor I was doing between 5 and 6 knots, keeping up with a motoring Hunter that left the harbour with me.
Sailed most of the way to Toronto (18 miles)
In the meantime, I swabbed the deck for a couple of hours.
Winds diminshed to four knots past Pickering and down came the spin.
Arrived at Whitby at 4pm.
