Theodore TOO left Rimouski at 4:23 this morning to stop in Saint-Siméon on the north shore of the Saint-Lawrence at 4:10 pm. We can imagine he will leave around low tide either very early tomorrow (around 1 a.m.) or tomorrow afternoon around 2 p.m.
The First Nations passed on their empirical knowledge of navigation between the Gulf of St. Lawrence and the Great Lakes from generation to generation. Today, the St. Lawrence is a challenge for sailors, because it is one of the most complex bodies of water on our blue planet. With its islands, reefs, and ports whose waters recede with lunar cycles, the River presents many challenges to those who venture there, especially on a ship of modest speed.
