Instagram This Month Posted on June 2, 2019June 4, 2019 Cleaning and packing. Almost done. Beautiful last night out in the water with the VanIsle 360 dance party music providing some serious 70s & 80s ambiance. The #RCN’s sail training ships Goldcrest and Tuna joined us in the anchorage last night. #royalcanadiannavy #sailing I have no idea what she is other than 70’ of lean, slick racing madness. #beautifulboats #racingmachine Good morning. Not getting tired of the views… Santé and Kerkyra of @nanaimoyachtcharters enjoying a gorgeous evening in Smuggler Cove. On watch. It’s a tough life. That moment when you think you have them because you’ve got the better tack and they go and raise their spinnaker… #racing #sailing A break from sailing with a quick stop and swim in Pendrell Sound Running 3rd (1st in our division) in our first ever race. Flotilla sailing with the Calgary Yacht Club! #desolationsound Even gray days are beautiful when you are on the water. Discovery Passage! Sand cats on Shark Spit 🙂 Gorgeous views on all sides! At anchor on a sunny day in Rebecca Spit after being treat to Orca in Hoskyn Channel. First day of rain on the trip! Enjoying a new cove in Von Donop… After a full day and night of rain it’s nice to wake up to sunshine and bird song. Everybody should be quiet near a little stream and listen. —R. Krauss#wordsofwisdom #peaceful #pnw #tenedosbay #desolationsound #beautifulbc #cruisinglife #mauricesendak Anchored next to the tombolo at Tenedos Bay. Oysters anyone? For a treat, lunch at Nancy’s Bakery in Lund. Exploring the Copeland’s on foot. New blog post at neverforever.ca Snug in our “favourite” Copeland Island anchorage (we’ve been here twice). Beautiful day for a hike! Ballet Bay was a new anchorage for us. Beautiful, calm and serene 🙂 Orca! Welcome to Malaspina Strait… 7 or 8 orca greeted us off Pender Harbour. I’ll never get tired of the sight. Do you have a favourite fungi? A little dull and grey this am, but it makes for some great b&w shots ?#sunshinecoast #smugglercove #cruisingPNW #beautifulBC One step forward, one step back…in Nanaimo for some quick repairs. Dinghy Dock Pub for dinner and back north again tomorrow! And so it begins again. Desolation, here we come… Due to circumstance beyond our control I had to put off our trip to the boat until Monday so I made a burgee instead. So I f you see it flying instead of the yellow NYCSS one it means “owners on board” ? Once a year like clockwork. It’s time to go sailing!
