Quebec City to Montreal on the return

Entering Quebec city from Baccuss. You can see the waves starting to build on the water.

 

Finally back in Quebec city again. I arrived here after a short hop over from Bacchus YC on the island down the river. Just stayed there one day to go and get a haircut and fuel up for the next leg home. I would leave there and do stops in PortNuef, TroisRiviere, and Sorel before getting to Montreal. Portnuef was nothing special but I had to wait there for the change in tide before leaving through the rapids or narrows in the river. I ended up in TroisRiviere at about 10pm at night against a strong current. When I arrived at the finger dock there was a boater that I had met earlier, Muarice that helped me tie up. He was kind enough to lend me hid access card so that I could get a shower late that night. I left again early in the morning for Sorel and arrived there again late in the day.

After Sorel I left and went further up the river to a town called Contrecoeur. Here I stayed two nights and waited for good winds to continue to Montreal.

This is a great little hide away harbour right off the river.
