Re: What's the difference? Help route planning.
Which Gulf Islands did you go to? I've read of some of your dislikes, but also remember that it was in the odd season. I've only been to Saltspring Island, and it was via bicycle/camping, not boat.
I'm also making the same decision. I think we may go north via the Gulf Islands and south along the Sunshine Coast.
I've been to Vancouver many times and it's a great city, but don't think we'll be sailing into it on this trip.
boats that I sail on regularly: Pearson 28-2, Rondar 505, Yankee 30, Blanchard Junior
