With west winds forecast, we decide to spend the day in Cobourg. A very nice day, but windy.

After a comfortable night on the hook, we decided to try and put the foresail back on. The wind was still blowing out of the Northeast, but we managed to get it up and furled.
We departed Hungry Bay at 09:00.
Later in the day, we were able to sort out what happened withe foresail. The furling line was jamming in the furler spool, because it was not setup properly when the mast was put up.
The strong southeast winds continue on Lake Ontario, generating very lumpy conditions. We sailed westward (on the jib) through the inside passage and entered the Murray Canal at noon. Shortly after 13:00, we made our entry out into Lake Ontario. The next 4 hours were not the most comfortable with the wind and waves on our port quarter. We were quite happy when we entered Cobourg harbour shortly after 17:00.

The winds are expected to veer to the southeast and continue in the 20 kt range. We decided that it would be more comfortable to take the inside passage via the Murray canal. We motored past Amherst Island, through Adolphus Reach and Long Reach toward Belleville. Near Belleville, we dropped anchor in Hungry Bay at 18:15 and enjoyed a nice sunset dinner.
