The furthest north we'll be this year

Peregrinus reached the north end of Grand Lake at the mouth of the Salmon River: N 46°4' and W 65°55'.  The Salmon is sufficiently deep for Peregrinus to sail all the way to Chipman, but power lines halfway there that are only 16 meters high are an unsurmountable obstacle in the river; we instead went there by Zodiac and reached latitude N 46°10'.  

This is higher than Montréal and Halifax, which sounds impressive enough, until one realises we are only as high as Lake Como in Italy, and that London, Copenhague and Helsinki are much, much further up north.  Maybe next year!

7 September 2014: Peregrinus on a port tack approaching Newcastle, three-and-half miles west of the mouth of the Salmon.  The black dot to the left of the boat icon is Fredericton, and the dot below it is Saint John.  The water on the right half of the map is the Gulf of Saint Lawrence, whose north shore we explored last year.
