We have been mostly under sail since leaving Alpena sunday morning. We stopped briefly on the lake over a shipwreck, the Montana, giving us time to deploy a ROV to investigate. I always feel a little weird about looking closely at wrecks; There but for the grace of god go I.

After sailing down Huron, the wind came around out of the north. We have decided to try something new;we are sailing the river. To our knowledge, this is the first time any itteration of the Niagara has done this since 1814. It is exciting, making eight knots under sail down this river as it used to be done. There is also an awareness of the accuracy and precision required for this.

By this evening, we should be back in lake Erie.
