R2AK Day 7 – Goodbye Vancouver Island

Well sadly Colin is out of cell phone reception and I didn’t hear from him today. Thank goodness for the tracker.  Between that and monitoring weather conditions, I feel like I could have almost been there on the boat with him. Minus the hard work, big waves, and sleep deprivation that is.

Colin’s had another stellar day.  Based on his speed, it looks like he sailed most of the day.  He had an early start again, around 5 am, and there were strong winds from the south.  Many of the other boats in the Johnstone Strait didn’t leave until the early afternoon so I imagine conditions must not have been favourable. Nonetheless, Colin made it through the Johnstone Strait and has left Vancouver Island behind.  He’s anchored about 60 km north of Vancouver Island near Duncaby Landing.
