Days like these

Took my Dad out for a sail today, grey skies but a nice breeze kept us sailing at 6+ knots pretty much all day. Hove to just out of Hughes Passage at the south end of Sidney Island and had lunch while a small pod of orca came past. First time I've actually got to see them from Tangerine in nearly 3 years of sailing around here.
We were pretty much the only vessel on the water, and got back into the slip just as it got dark. Perfect.
Don't understand why people up in this part of the world pull their boats over winter, it's some of the best sailing

Re: Days like these

Sounds like a good time Paul. Supposed to be more or less dry for the next week (amazing!) around here, maybe we'll see you out there.

Maybe John, wind isn't supposed to be up to much but we'll see. Shawn, funnily enough I said to Dad "I haven't got my camera, I bet we see orca", and sure enough......

Re: Days like these

Sounds like a wonderful day Paul.
I think the closest I ever got to taking my Dad sailing was when he tried out my windsurfer at the beach once.
Good for you!
