Oderin Island, Newfoundland—A Poignant Return


After a slow start, John and I finally got moving with a very pleasant overnight sail from Cub Basin to the Bras d’Or Lakes, followed by a few days of gentle cruising there while the wind decided to misbehave and blow from the east.

When it finally straightened itself out, we opted for another overnight passage direct to Placentia Bay, Newfoundland, our cruising destination for the 2015 season.

Phyllis has sailed over 40,000 offshore miles with John on their McCurdy & Rhodes 56, Morgan's Cloud, most of it in the high latitudes, and has crossed the Atlantic three times. As a woman who came to sailing as an adult, she brings a fresh perspective to cruising, which has helped her communicate what they do in an approachable way, first in yachting magazines and, for the last 12 years, as co-editor/publisher of AAC.
