Vancouver BC is pretty tiny spec of BC. I've cruised BC for most of the last 40 years and haven't been to Vancouver in years, and have no desire to go there. I haven't paid moorage on my current boat in 27 years. Newport is a long stretch of open ocean from any good cruising grounds. You'd be better off in Puget sound.
Maybe get a smaller boat first, keep it on a mooring or the trailer up in Bellingham or Anacortes, then you can explore the wonderful cruising grounds of the San Juans and Gulf islands. As your skills, confidence and seamanaship improve you can push off further North or offshore....
