Yes, I miss that. Lovely places (and very nice photos)...but they look quite cold for a southern man. What is the water temperature?

Regards

Paulo

Depending on location, anywhere between 51/53 F to 74/5 F (10C to 24C) If you look at GE you'll see that Vancouver island forms a huge 'breakwater' on the coast. Tides flood in around both top and bottom, therefore the water in the middle more or less 'stays put' and gets well warmed by the summer sun. This is a large part of the appeal of Desolation Sound.

North of the tidal rapids the water temp drops dramatically, to the point that the cabin is often colder below than the outside temp in the morning... but the scenery is more dramatic, and normally it's less crowded (not seemingly so this past summer)

Re: Pictures: Those perfect moments

Just read this from the beginning. Makes me jealous all of the beautiful places some of you are sailing in! Here are few special ones for me:

First is my father. Probably the last multi-day trip I will ever sail with him, which is sad to me. He taught me how to sail as a kid and we did many passages together, with others and also double-handed. The hardest was a fall passage from Eastern Nova Scotia to Nantucket that had 5 straight days of gale force winds straight out of Nantucket. He was always a great captain/mate. This is on the delivery trip taking my new-to-me boat home. Heading south towards Newport.

This next pic is of my two boys during a short cruise this past summer. Location is Oyster Bay on Long Island.

Re: Pictures: Those perfect moments

Great to see kids having fun this way.. and no Iphones/gameboys in sight!

We were lucky to spend several days this summer with our son and his family, also sailors with their own boat. Early one beautiful morning we received a visit from our granddaughter.. her first 'solo' kayak!



She spent hours in the water.



And when you're in a place a gorgeous as this....



Everyone wants to play in the sand!
