Re: West Coast Vancouver Island - Up Hill
I'm in Barkley Sound, just made the run from Sooke a few days ago. The main current you'll have to deal with is Juan de Fuca. We caught a nice ebb and gained two knots over our normal motoring speed (no wind). During the flood from Port San Juan to Barkley I noticed about .5-1.0 knot that we were fighting. We're hoping for favorable winds on Wed. to sail to Tofino area, I'll let you know about the current. I did the same trip to Nootka a long time ago, but I don't remember if there was much of a current agin us or not.
