Re: Nanaimo - Princess Louisa Inlet in early July

Two things which could prove helpful:

1) Locals report old logging cables etc. in Anderson Bay and recommend an anchor trip line and float when anchoring just in case you snag an artifact.

2) Another sketchy but possible anchorage in Jervis is on the south side of Deserted Bay near the drying point shown on the charts. Rocky bottom and we used a small stern anchor to keep from swinging overnight. We were reasonably protected from inflows (which were strong in our case) but outflows would put you on a lee shore. Conveniently close to wait out Malibu but should be considered as a Plan B bailout rather than a destination.

I'm in Pender tonight and shopped at the IGA. On the way back from a lovely trip to PLI.

I have a similar diet. The IGA in Pended Harbour was better equipped than most island grocery stores for natural/organic foods.

Re: Nanaimo - Princess Louisa Inlet in early July

Smuggler's Cove was awesome, we anchored there last night. For some reason it only seems to attract motor boats, but we had no problem getting in and out with a 5' draft. I never saw less than 15' under the boat, even at low tide.

We're in Pender now (not very far, but we have time) and really like it here too. We're taking a shore day at Pilot House marina which is quite, simple, and awesome (great showers, free internet, quick dinghy to Maidera).

NorthOceanBeach: I wouldn't worry so much about provisioning before crossing the border. There is a good size grocery store in Pender (at Maidera, two blocks from the dinghy docks) and we were at another 2 days ago in Naniamo. I think there is another in Lund before we get to Desolation Sound proper. We just keep a list going to try and stay well stocked. Ice has also been pretty easy to find so far, though we have enough socked away in case we can't use the cooler anymore.

Re: Nanaimo - Princess Louisa Inlet in early July

North oceans trip is still under way but delayed due to DMV licence renewal at home. I was able to take care of it and it should be renewed Monday or Tuesday. I'm going to do provisioning tomorrow which I am very poor at. I go buy $50 of food, can't think of anything else, look at the cart and commend myself on a job well done, then take it back to the boat and have eaten all the good stuff in two of three days. Wish me luck tomorrow.

Who are you chartering with? Nanaimo? I was thinking of speaking to them about their 27' later this summer for a week, so I'm interested to see how you find things.

Re: Nanaimo - Princess Louisa Inlet in early July

So hereís my plan:

Anchoring in Smugglerís Cove the first night out of Nanaimo, instead of Secret Cove or Pender.
Egmont, maybe in a marina, the second night to top off before heading to PLY.
PLI the third night, maybe staying over another night.
Back to Dark Cove, or Egmont if we need supplies.
Jedediah or Anderson Bay.
Maybe Schooners Cove the final night before heading to Nanaimo early in the morning.

All subject to weather conditions, of course!

Any feedback?

Northoceanbeach, how was your trip?

Re: Nanaimo - Princess Louisa Inlet in early July

In July there is often a line from Agamemnon channel to Nanaimo, east of which it is predominantly South easterlies and northwest of which it is predominantly northwesterlies. Sailing directly from Nanaimo to Pender harbour would be your best bet. You can even lay most of that on a single tack, in westerlies. If there is high pressure in the interior and low offshore you will get an outflow. The reverse gets you an inflow, and a downwind sleigh ride up the channel. Night and early morning is the best time for coming down the channel; usually.
Forget the other sugested stops. You dont have enough time going up, and they can be visited later, if you still have the time.
