Re: Barkley Sound, West Coast Vancouver Island

Its been a while since I have been out there.
Hot Springs Cove is worth it. I went in the spring,
September the Jaun De Fuca and the west coast are still prone to fog.
Boat was a 42 Maple Leaf we sailed to Bambfield from Vic was about a day and a half. to windward. Not much there there was a gov dock and pub.
Ucculet is a nice stop, for Food at Co Op, water and Beer. Marina Dock.
A full day from there up to the Hot Springs Cove.
Did Neah Bay to Roche Harbor in June after coming up from Portland.
There's not much in the way of options after Sook, Port Renfrew looks very exposed but there is a gov dock.
Contemplating going out there again soon may be end of august begining of september Fishing is good by August.
more likely I will head up the inside.
Just puttering about in the San Juans just now its quite nice but rather pricy if you stop in anywhere
