Lt. Hamilton's Log 17 October

These past 3 days we had experienced a foul east south east blow straight up the harbor channel with heavy rain and fogs keeping Acasta bottled up. On Saturday we had a slight break in the wind but was able to beat out no further that the lighthouse on McNabb’s Island before being blown back and forced to take shelter the that island’s lee.
Weather this morning broke fair and bright winds north northwest. We have attained the morning tide and are currently riding out at to the South East at 9 knots.
Noon observations, 44 31’ N 63 28’ W. This puts well clear of the Harbor mouth and clear of the shoals of the South East of McNabb.
