Re: Vancouver to Gambier Island

Up past Snug Cove and Horseshoe bay is the most direct route.. sailing around Bowen can be fun on a good day but is definitely extra distance. Thing about sailing around an island is there's always going to be a 'no wind' zone somewhere..

We like Halket Bay best, but favour the right/east shore until you're past the steel dolpin.. there's a sneaky nasty rock there.
