First Night at Anchor

We spent our first night anchored in the Chatham Islands opposite Cadboro Bay and Royal Victoria Yacht Club. The sunset was glorious and we took it as a good omen for the voyage to come after a rather inauspicious start that required replacing the muffler and getting off the dock at 6:10 pm. When sailing it is important to be flexible as often things don't go as originally planned.

I hear through the sailing grapevine that you met J & J up north end of the island and are heading further a field on your adventures. Hope all is well. We're all thinking about you and wishing we were with you. I'm finally heading out to the Gulf Islands for a week today. Nice to be off the dock again (although it's not like your trip).

Keep us updated!
