Re: Crossing from West Vancouver to Sidney
Yes, I get that. I see the later slack is at 6 pm.. that is a bit late, but you do have 4 hours effective daylight nearly this time of year after that. it's a pretty big flood during the afternoon and that's really going to slow you down between Saltspring and Sidney.
Fighting the tide down the outside would be tough too...
If it were me I'd go for the late slack at Porlier and push through to Sidney (with tide assist) or stop at Wallace or Ganges or Prevost and do the rest the next day, but you've decided not to stop...
btw... have we been told about the new girl??
