Currently reporovisioing in Tofino.

Post  kiwijohn on Mon Aug 30, 2010 4:29 am

Our old Cascade 36 has been a project for a number of years. We are currently out enjoying an extended circumnavigation of Vancouver is. We have been at it since the last week of May, moving iwth the wind, when we see something new to visit. This year, we have had a lot of adverse weather and were shrouded in thick fog on parts of the west coast. Since we have no radar, there have been some challenging, perhaps anxious, moments especially around some of those rock piles like Battle Bay & Sea Otter cove. But, careful attention to the compass, and the old speed /time / distance calculations have so far kept us out of trouble. We plan to be in Barkl;ey Sound for the next week or so, then back to the Guilf Is. before returning home in late October/ early Novemeber.
It is a tough, simple boat; ideally suited for this environment. I'd especially recommend that Factory dodger, makes all the difference and a fgreat place toi mount our solar panels..
