Re: 1st Straight of Georgia passage
Looks like you had a nice relaxing crossing!
The first time we took Schock Therapy across the straight, and my wife's first time ever, we had 15-20kts tight reaching. I had a great time at the helm because it was the first time I got a chance to sail the boat in decent wind and waves. Other than having a sore arm from working the tiller for 4 hours I had a great day, and my son slept all the way across! It wasn't until we were at our destination and I had a cocktail in my hand that I found out that my wife was quietly terrified the whole way across!
She's much better now that crossings have become routine! Last year we had porpoises playing in our bow wave coming back to Vancouver! We were so taken with the moment that we didn't even think of getting the camera out!
