Awesome trip Faster.

I also want to thank you for your advice on various threads about cruising in the Desolation Sound region. I had a 4 week cruise in July and we spent a lot of time up there and I did benefit from the posts that you've made over the last year. My trip report is here:

I hope to get to explore farther north another time. It might be a while, I haven't had this much time off since high school and don't know when I'll see it again.

We found good sailing conditions for the first 2 weeks of our trip, almost complete lack of wind the third week, then mixed conditions at the end of July. So we sailed most of the way to Desolation Sound, but motored much of the way home.
