Around Vancouver Island again

I am heading to Victoria on Sunday to go around the Island. It should be an interesting trip:
  • 9 folks total
  • 4 instructors ( I am conducting a upgrade for 2 to Yachtmaster Offshore and a cross over from CYA Intermediate to ISPA Coastal Skipper)
  • 5 students
  • 2 boats - a Bavaria 42 (Scottish Mist) and a Jeanneau SO 45 (Sailaway)

I am sleeping on Scottish Mist

The first night (Sunday) is Ganges. The other instructors and the students will need to do some passage planning. I expect to get through the passes east of Campbell River either Tuesday or Wednesday of next week.

If anyone is around and spots us, give us a call.

Unlike previous trips, I may try to do a trip log here. Pictures will be sparse.

Is there anyone else up there I should look for?

Will anyone be in Barkley Sound later on?
