The Perry boat I'd already sorted, just thought it was interesting enough to post.

How did your round the island trip go this year?
Had a great trip April / May.

In July we had a good sail up to Hardy. Just after we crossed the Nahwitti Bar we shut down the engine to sail. There was a huge squeal and the smell of burning rubber; we had a seized alternator.

I was concerned about being close to the shore so I contacted Comox CG. They sent the Cape Sutil out to baby sit us while we sailed back across the bar. After a great gennaker run back to Hardy, we docked under sail at the government dock and waited for a new alternator to get shipped up. It took more time than we had so we came back down the inside.

Octopus Islands was great and we had a great sail from Musket Island to Silva. We did power through Welcome Passage.

I am headed out on Friday to teach a competent crew / day skipper on Twist, the C&C 115. We will be in the Ganges area for the course; it will be crowded.
