Re: C&C Regatta

Thanks for the info! I haven't sailed in the area for over ten years now, so knowing this will definitely help when I am passing by this summer!

I've only made it down to my boat three times since I bought it last October, but I am moving to Nanaimo in April!

The pictures look like a lot of fun!!

We've been sailing around here for over 30 years in boats ranging from 24 to 40 feet and have never been unable to find a spot in Smuggler cove.. lots of nooks and crannies.

Don't be discouraged by the 'busy' look from outside the entrance. There are two more usable 'pools' beyond that and though it can be tricky there's usually a spot in there somewhere.

Plenty of people peek through the gap, see a half dozen masts and carry on to Secret Cove without checking. This is especially true when our club rafts up over 30 boats immediately to the left of the entrance itself on the July weekend.... The bay 'looks' packed but it's just that first section.

Here you can see all the space looking south...

Sorry for the hijack... back to the C&C event....

Hey that sounds good Peter! I will give you a call then, and do the same if you see us! Might even see you sooner as there is a lot of season prior to August!

Looking forward to the season and meeting you guys too!

We will be in your neck of the woods.
We are planning on visiting Nanaimo, Silva Bay and we will be at Wakes Cove on Valdez Island for at least a few days. We might make a trip over to Smugglers Cove but that plan is still up in the air. It can get very busy in Smugglers Cove in August. If you hale us on ch.16 you should find us somewhere around these areas.
I look forward to meeting you.

bcsailor2003 Hey Peter, I booked a few extra days off before the Rendezvous. I will be leaving my marina Aug 4th to do some gunkholing in the area before going to Telegraph Harbour. I will keep a look out for you or see you on the 10th for sure.

It will be August in the Gulf Islands, on a HAS to be nice! lol

Dog Ship Hey Alfy,

We too just booked our moorage reservations for the C&C Rendezvous at Telegraph Harbour yesterday. We will be there from August 9th through to the 13th, at least.
I'll be on my holidays then so we will be cruising around the Gulf Islands for a month or so.
I hope the weather is nice.

bcsailor2003 Hey guys, I have booked at Telegraph for Aug 10,11 and 12 and also contacted Debbie. She says more info coming out next week for the event. Hope to see you guys there!

bcsailor2003 That sounds like great fun! I had a Gennaker for my San Juan, which I think may have been better than a Spinnaker on that boat on the downwind leg. For my new boat, I have a both, but I think I will find myself using the Gennaker the majority of the time. Just so much easier to use, plus the Gennaker on this boat has a dosing sock. I have never used one before, but I imagine it will make it even more appealing! =D

PaulinVictoria Yep, very similar, think she's a little easier to control downwind though. Was out this afternoon, bit gusty but good fun, 6+ knots through the water regularly which isn't bad for a little tub that doesn't plane.

bcsailor2003 The C&C must be a great sailing vessel! Probably very similar to the San Juan 24 I had before. Registering sounds like an easy process!
