Videos : Sailing Vancouver Islands West Coast

We're just beginning a three week trip up the west coast of Vancouver Island with the family, and I'm starting to play around with videos. I just have the first two up now, as we are just getting going, more to come as we continue I hope, as time permits and internet access occurs.

This is my first attempt at videography, so constructive criticism is welcome, but be nice! The videos were made mostly for our own use and to show our family a bit of what a trip like this is like for us, but I hope others will enjoy it too.

These cover from where we started in Port Hadlock, Washington to Victoria, BC...

Thanks for sharing the videos. They're interesting. I like when you guys would take turns narrating. I like the compressed timeline sequences.

IslGuy, Nice vid-start, so far so good. Because I'm on a cell tower internet connection I can only watch a bit of the beginning of your video. As soon as I get to a free WiFi location I'll watch the rest. It looks good so far...very nice. It seems your heading clockwise or are you going counterclockwise and is this a circumnavigation? I will be looking forward to your videos. You will be hard pressed to find frequent internet access on the outside of the island particularly north of Tofino. Have fun...I'll be watching for updates.

Re: Videos : Sailing Vancouver Islands West Coast

Great videos! You have a good crew there. Are you in Victoria now, we tried to get there today but 30-35 kts and 6' waves made us choose Oak Bay instead where we successfully docked/crashed (bad gust, sorry no pics as I was a tad busy). The forecast doesn't look good for the long haul out to Barkley, Friday morning sounds OK, but west winds building in the afternoon. What are your plans?

Hey John, some big ebbs coming up for your trip west. It's fun it see 9 and 10 knots over ground in old shoes like ours.

Re: Videos : Sailing Vancouver Islands West Coast

We will be behind you you a month from now. Depart Sidney July 8.

How long are you taking to go around?

EDIT Duh? Three weeks, we will not see you.

I have been around a few times. If you have any questions, fire away.

Re: Videos : Sailing Vancouver Islands West Coast

Thanks for all the possitive responses! We aren't going all the way around, just up North of Tofino, and then relax and goof around until we need to head back.

John, we are in Victoria now, at the causeway docks. We planned to head on today, but with the Gales in the straight, we stayed an extra day. We're planning to head on out tommorow and do an over nighter up to Telfino, then play around and make more stops on the way back down. We're also keeping these plans very loose, depending on the weather, sea state and energy levels we may just sail in the day and stop for the nights, we'll see.

Thanks Jake, I would LOVE to go all the way around sometime, but just can't swing the time to it at a fun pace at the moment. We're planning stops in Tofino, Hot Springs Cove... and one other cool out of the way place we cant remember the name of at the moment. Any must sees on your list in that area?

Thanks all, hope to post more in telfino in a few to five or so days.

Re: Videos : Sailing Vancouver Islands West Coast

Once you leave Victoria, aside from Sooke which is hard to navigate, your next stop is Bamfield. I usually do that overnight. This time of year it is a very long day. Port Renfrew is not viable, open to the south and the dock is fixed, you do not want to tie up.

Spend a whole bunch of time in Barkley Sound. Joe's Bay (Walsh Island, Turtle Island, come in from the north) , Effingham Bay, Nettle Island, Pinkerton Island (lunch stop, too much current for me). The Port Alberni Yacht Club station at Robbers Pass on Fleming Island is great; showers, water (maybe), great folks if they are there.

The marinas in Tofino are reported to have lots of current. I actually have only been there by land. It is nice.

Ucluelet is nice stop; say hi to Steve Bird, the harbour master at the small boat harbour and tell him I will see him later in July. Hot Springs is great although crowded with tourists during the day, stay overnight to enjoy the springs to yourself in the evening or the morning. It is a bit of a hike, but really worth it.

I come back down Juan de Fuca at night, avoiding the TSS, and go for breakfast in Victoria at John's Place.

Re: Videos : Sailing Vancouver Islands West Coast

Bryan- we need to go to downtown Victoria in the morning (1000) then we'll see what the weather gods have in store. Probably Sooke tomorrow night unless the forecast sounds nasty for several days. In that case we'll probably head for the Gulf Islands, etc.
Ray- when we turned around just past Trial Is today we were doing 9+ knots, lots of fun. Beating into it, not so much, lots of water on deck and speed over ground about .7 knots. God I love Canada, friendliest people on the planet!
