So I need to bring my new (old) boat back home. I'm thinking of doing it the weekend of 8/9th June.
Assuming the weather is OK, my plan was going to be along these lines:
04:00 - Depart Fisherman's Cove and make for Porlier pass (approx 25 miles), maintain average of 5kts
09:00 - Arrive Porlier Pass and catch the last of the current in the right direction (slack at the pass is supposed to be around 10am)
Going then be against the current all the way down Trincomali etc but that's no biggie, figure we would be into Sidney by around 16:30
Doing it Sunday would mean about 30 minutes later departure to hit the pass for the 10:30 slack.
Any gaping holes in my plan? Have I completely misread everything?
Any other suggestions? I'd rather avoid sailing overnight, or staying somewhere.
