Continuing West down Lake Ontario

From Fairhaven NY we sailed West 46 nm back to the Rochester Yacht Club. We have met friends on other boats sailing in our direction so 4 boats set out together. For 2 days we were"trapped" in the bay with high winds blocking easy and safe access thru the breakwall. But as "luck" would have it now there were no winds. So we fired up the engines and off we went very early in the morning hoping the winds would pick up through the morning.
This is our Catalina 36  with Kyle at the helm. It was not long after this picture was taken that Kyle was down in the engine compartment taking weeds out of the impeller. The few days of high winds had made for quite a bit of weeds floating in the bay. We found these weeds in our impeller :)
These two boats came from Lake Erie for a summer circumnavigation of Lake Ontario. We ran into them many times through out the summer.
