Day 6: Blind Channel to Port Harvey

Today we have to transit two rapids (much milder than yesterday’s) and Johnstone Strait. After several consecutive early mornings the group was ready to sleep in so we opted to leave the dock about 10:45 a.m. rather than the 5:00 a.m. departure I had originally planned.

The rapids were easy but the 10-15 knot breeze in Johnstone Strait caused chop that was uncomfortable for a few of the smaller boats. They perservered, but their tone on the VHF suggested they’d rather wait for calmer conditions.

Beautiful scenery!
We got into Port Harvey mid afternoon. George and Gail (the owners) took good care of us, catching lines and baking pizza. John and Lorine on Ocean Alexandra hosted the whole group for a cocktail hour(s) on their boat. Some of our participants had never been on a yacht of that size and were pretty awe struck.
