Where in B.C. do you cruise? We go up to the Desolation Sound area each summer ourselves, usually in July. Wonder if we've been in the same spots?

hi erps,

boat is in anacortes, not far from you i see.
it is a green hulled 20' yawl called turnstone. tanbark sails, classic appearance.

this year we spent 35 days from late july going to princess louisa, malaspina strait, lasqueti and so on.

we have been at it for some time now. usually go for 6 weeks or more. our son is 9 and loves it. have made it as far as port hardy, but we want to see what's beyond cape caution one of these years!

what about you?

cheers, jan

We must have just missed each other this summer. We usually head out around the July 4th holiday and usually take 3 weeks. A couple of times we took 4 weeks and went up into Johnstone Strait. We've done Princess Louisa around 4 times now. Love it up there. In the morning when you wake up and look up at the glaciers above the sheer granite walls in the morning sun it really touches me very deeply. Looking forward to being able to cruise the whole summer up there then go south for the winters. Great pictures on your trip report this summer.
