Coastal BC Cruising

This week we hoped for some good weather to take an overnighter on the chuck. On Tuesday, we started to follow our friend Ken in his new 28' EagleCraft down to Gibsons (also see Christening Mr. Buttercup). We were doing fine in his wake until we rounded Grief Point. The wind driven swells were not a problem for him, but our 24' Bayliner was really pounding. It was safe, but really slow going, so we opted to turn around and go back up the lake to our float cabin.

Today's better, so we are heading north to locate the Gibsons Yacht Club in Desolation Sound. They should be in Grace Harbour off Okeover Inlet. If not, we plan to head over to a favorite anchorage of ours in Theodosia Inlet. Either way it should be fun to be out on the water again, AND before the summer crowds.

If you would like to read more about cruising in Desolation Sound and the Strait of Georgia, Up the Strait is the book for you.

It is available for purchase at http://www.powellriverbooks.com/ or at several locations in the Powell River area.
