Re: Hello from Canada. Looking to plan a long trip, any help would be appreciated.

My father and I are planning on taking a sailing course in Vancouver. It's a week long with theory/lingo and practical hands-on training. Other than that, I'm hoping for a job on the ferries, (2 wks on/off) so I may spend some of the off time in Prince Rupert, looking for skippers to sail with.

Not quite from Northern BC, but I did live up in Fort St. John for a year a couple of years ago. All I can say is...... Brrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr! Summer was nice though.

Hello from Canada. Looking to plan a long trip, any help would be appreciated.

Yeah, I live in Langley for the school year, and I'm finding that I miss the winters with snow. When I packed for this last year, I had to give my head a shake...then proceed to unpack all my winter clothes and coat. People around here think I'm crazy.

Whereabouts are you based? I'll probably be working out of Fort Nelson and/or FSJ for the summer on projects (3wks on, 1 wk off). I'm also aiming to be based generally around Langley area when we get over and buy somewhere. I'd check out the LMYC at White Rock - they have about 7 boats and rates look reasonable.

I'm more to the coast, Prince Rupert would be the nearest harbour.
