The next morning we watched them patiently drift/sail out of the harbour out into Malaspina Strait.. took quite a while.

Actually I believe that is their second boat, "Taliesin". Might that have been about 7 years ago? I encountered them around that time drifting/sailing in the same area while on my friend's 76ft mega-yacht. At the time I was a 100% Pardey deciple and wanted to yell to them that I have all their books and that they are my heroes. Of course yelling that, to the Pardeys, who are drifting on their engineless cutter, from the deck of a 76ft boat going 17kts burning 3gal/mile of diesel, and nearly swamping them with our wake...... well..... I instead chose not to make myself seen.


I have a sauna on my boat, therefore I win.
