Re: BC waters engineless?

You could split the difference and have an outboard on your dinghy.
Even a modest outboard can hip push a pretty big boat if it is dead calm with no current.
At least that way you have another option in at least one circumstance.

Re: BC waters engineless?

Guess I missed the "negative" part of this thread. The OP asked for information and he got some from some very experienced sailors in this area. Can it be done? Of course. How long would a circumnavigation of Van. Is take in a small boat without engine? I wouldn't want to guess without more info. about time of year, type and size of boat, which direction they'll be going, etc. It's about 600 NM or so, summer winds are flukey and currents are strong and timing is critical at some locations and provisions in some areas are almost non-existent. Hope that isn't too "negative".

Re: BC waters engineless?

I'll give you guys a full report in October when I return. I'm sailing a traditional boat around the island. I have no motor, and will be using paper charts and a lead line. I'm filming it so maybe I can capture some of the fun moments for you guys. Cheers
