Pos:  48.8922, -125.3772 Loc: Clark Island Acc: tent Dist: 53,8 km Start: 07:00 End: 16:45 What a difference a day makes…this morning, the sea was like when I landed, reasonable swell and breakers or mostly no breakers on my beach corner. Easy out, and I got the first whale sighting of the trip! A spout, and […]

Pos: 48.6611, -124.8245 Loc: Cloo-oose River west Acc: tent no paddling today I was watching monster-breaker-TV all day – when it was greatest 2,50m seas the other days, these were easily 4m. And 4m at the Pacific means long rollers breaking around every previously safe corner unless it is not a safe harbor going around least […]

Pos: 48.6611, -124.8245 Loc: Cloo-oose River west Acc: tent Dist: 32,9 km Start: 07:10 End: 13:30 Sorry I couldn’t sent the update from yesterday, but camping inside the forest didn’t give me good sat phone reception, and outside it was raining and not inviting to walk on the beach with my laptop… A rainy night made […]

Pos: 48.5584, -124.4722 Loc: Thrasher Cove Acc: tent Dist: 43,4 km Start: 07:00 End: 16:50 Calm winds and seas today – conditions I am usually getting bored and I start fiddling here and stopping there, eating this and that, making not most of the quiet day. I also felt quite chilly all day, neither my feet […]

Pos: 48.4126, -124.0141 Loc: Big Waterfall Dumper Beach Acc: tent Dist: 38,8 km Start: 06:40 End: 17:20 My campsite down at the sandy beach stayed well dry as expected, even on new moon tide. Good spot. It would be a tough day today, with forecasted winds from west directly into my face between 10 and 20 […]

Pos: 48.3244, -123.6353 Loc: Aylard Beach Acc: tent Dist: 29 km Start: 06:50 End: 13:00 All organized and set, I was looking forward to being off civilization very soon.

Pos: 48.4298, -123.3713 Loc: Victoria Acc: tent on dock no paddling today I woke to amazingly not much sore muscles, despite me paddling long and hard yesterday and being quite untrained the last months.

Pos: 48.4298,-123.3713 Loc: Victoria Acc: tent on dock Dist: 56,9 km Start: 07:20 End: 18:45 No one showed up on Protection Island, all quite besides some noisy seals or sea lions spending the night close to my tent. They were gone in the morning though… Decisions are sometimes spontaneously made! After a very quick paddle (10 […]

Pos: 48.1284, -122.9203 Loc: Protection Island Acc: tent Dist: 31,5 km Start: 07:25 End: 14:25 My choice of campsite on Kenney Point gravel beach proved to be fine – just about! I was too tired to walk up the cliff with all my stuff, and was too tired for any chat in case there were some […]
