Pos: 49.8558, -127.1204 Loc: Yellow Bluff Acc: tent Dist: 41 km Start: 07:20 End: 14:45 A rainy night, packing in the rain, and launching into the millpond like water of the sound. We paddled up with the current to the junction leading west, and were admiring the high mountains raising besides us into the low hanging […]

Pos: 49.8044, -126.6479 Loc: Santiago Creek Acc: tent Dist: 32,4 km Start: 07:20 End: 18:15 It was a bit of a harder push for 20 km into 15 knots of due north wind to reach the lighthouse on the South-Eastern corner of Nootka Island. No pleasant hugging the coast paddling, because despite of calm seas, still […]

Pos: 49.4065, -126.5649 Loc: Homais Cove Acc: tent Dist: 32,4 km Start: 08:30 End: 15:15 We had a good calm (but too short…) night on Shawn’s boat in lovingly set up cabins, followed by some slightly complicated packing of the stuffed to the max floating kayaks from a wobbly dock. It was a cool, but sunny […]

Pos: 49.1541, -125.9103 Loc: Tofino Acc: Justine’s and J.F.’s house All packed, all set, many things discussed how about we like to do it – Justine and I are ready to leave! The outlook shows an extremely calm week with seas around and under 2m, with few rain. What else do we want… Only tomorrow will […]

Pos: 49.1541, -125.9103 Loc: Tofino Acc: Justine’s and J.F.’s house Dist: 40,7 km Start: 11:00 End: 18:45 I may have had company on today’s paddle – if unfortunately, Justine’s VFH-class in the morning would not have taken that long! I was dropped off by J.F. at Little Beach at 10.45, peeped out of the bay and […]

Pos: 48.9337, -125.5408 Loc: Ucluelet Acc: Justine’s and J.F.’s house no paddling today A fat rainstorm was howling around the house all day, thank goodness houses are hollow ad dry to hide inside! I was happy to wait another day to continue paddling, filled with chores, from the important ones (going to Jen Elisa, the […]

Pos: 48.9365, -125.5360 Loc: Ucluelet Acc: Justine’s and J.F.’s house no paddling despite lovely sunshine, just chores… Yes, sorry, not much to tell. I finally fixed my kayak today with a huge patch and some more smaller ones, and drilled a hole in the front bulkhead to release pressure. Despite it was leaking heavily, the forceful […]

Pos: 48.9365, -125.5360 Loc: Ucluelet Acc: Justine’s and J.F.’s house Dist: 13,7 km Start: 07:20 End: 10:15 I could not send and receive messages with my sat phone yesterday, no idea what was wrong.
