Re: West Coast Vancouver Island - Up Hill
Port San Juan (Port Renfrew) is wide open to the south. The dock is fixed dock. I have been twice: once because the battery circuit as shorted out and the the batteries were so weak we could not start; the other time was after a Honolulu to PNW run when we took out the transmission with a piece of fishing net. Both times we sailed to the dock.
Needless to say, I like to give it a pass. The towns folk are a super bunch.
I am usually sailing (powering really) from Barkley Sound to Victoria and fit in an overnighter to Victoria.
