Living and Sailed on the North West Coast
for 25 years. Most boaters have a goal North to South or South to North. The Inside passages have winds predominately the same. The trick is is to be flexible go with the wind
and Sail East to West. Head
into the outside passages, wider more wind
and you have a better chance of Sailing. People who motor
are often making time. RElax and enjoy a smaller area, that what sailing is all about, yes?
SUmmer is short (if it arrives). Rain is what you expect, clear weather
is what makes it special. Also in Northern BC, perhaps more than SE Alaska, very few habited places, so be prepared to fix what breaks. Leave the Inside Passage
and you are often on your own. Incredible area.
