Theodore fighting his way up the mighty St-Lawrence!

 

After spending the night in Rivière-aux-Renards, Theodore TOO was about fifty miles from Sainte-Anne-des-Monts at 2p.m. today. With strong southwesterly winds and the Gaspé Current on the nose, our valiant little tug is moving at 4.2 knots, which brings back many memories to this author who repeatedly took this route at the helm of sailboats. Obviously, it is in Sainte-Anne-des-Monts where Theodore will be able to celebrate the National Day of Quebec with the citizens of the place. Unfortunately, Theodore will not be in Quebec City to join the concert of ship horns scheduled for noon in all Canadian ports to highlight the contribution of seafarers during the pandemic and remind the authorities that it is high time to organize vaccination campaigns on board all vessels currently sailing. It’s not just a matter of health, but also a matter of respect and recognition for all these crews who have allowed us to comfortably carry on our lives during the worst global crisis on this planet! Nothing less.
