jackdale will become famous soon enough
I have sailed every month of the year in British Columbia. I will admit that December, January and February are a bit cool.

My last trip this year end on Oct 6. My first trip next year starts March 29.

We too try to get out year round... our club has events throughout the winter, including a New Years eve get together at Bowen Island, a short 10 nm sail for most of us....

Given the generally light air during summers, particularly in the popular cruising areas, some of our "best sailing" is in the so-called shoulder seasons and winter.

How far north does the nearly all year round zone extend ?

I need to get some good cruising guides to the PNW.

Charlie's Charts is the obvious and I've just ordered a copy.

Not a cruising guide but Jonathan Raban's "Passage to Juneau" was the book that first turned me on to the area.

Anything else ?

(hmm...this should be its own thread and I bet someone else has already covered it....time to hit the search engine wombat)
