Re: Around Vancouver Island again

Well, what a bummer for you and your students. When you say your windows were closed, what precisely do you mean? Did you not have much margin for layover days? How many total days did you budget for the trip?

Those winds up there are nasty, nasty, nasty, and against an ebb things get violent.

And yes, returning to the islands of milk and honey is grand living, but not exactly offshore training for the students. I can imagine being really crushed if I had signed on and hoped for offshore time. Unwin Lake and Black Lake and Walsh Cove would soothe my sore hopes!
