Planning a simmillar tripo this year in simmillar sise boat.
sailing up to cape mudge cambell river no problem 3 to 4 easy day sails
. 8 to 10 hr lots of options for anchorages
. Desolation sound is well worth a day or 2. Some years ago I chartered a Catelina 34 in Vancouver went to Desolation Sound and Cambel River and Back. Used 25 bucks worth of diesel price
has doubled I sailed mostly.
Cambel River to Port Hardy time your trip through seymore for HW slack at turn point then let the ebb help you Id sail most of the way from there.
and take few days to poke about.
Port hardy to Bella Bella upt to Cape Caution is all open water
great sailing if there is wind
later in summer expect fog
in morning cape caution to lama pass back in sheltered water
wide open no problem sailing.
After Bella Bella you choice up through boat bluff princes royal channel makay reach grenville is beatifull but wind
will be mostly on the nose or up yer ass.
Or go out to mcinnes and up through laredoe wider better for sailing if beating still beautifull come back in and do Grenville even if the winds aginst you its only 30 miles.
from there its nice sailing to Prince Rupert.
Never gone further than Rupert but I expect its much the same.
I intend to sail and take my time. only have a 20 gallon tank.
If you are in a hurry and motering all the way on a stick boat.
24 hrs Van to hardy
24 hrs hardy to rupert is a good rough estimate for a displacement hull
ptting along at about 8 or 9 kn.
How much diesel do you use per hour.
