'Turicum' Back Home After Nineteen Days
The crew of Turicum pulled into Victoria Harbour around noon last Sunday after 19 days from Maui. One of the family
of the one of the crew posted our track on Google
Maps along with some of the postings we sent back.

The trip was upwind the almost the whole way. We did some powering to get through the worst of the Pacific high which then shifted way north giving us strong northerlies for the last few days. We did not fare as badly was one of the other boats which had 36 hours of gale force winds.
I am home until September 1 - and then headed out into the Pacific on another trip around Vancouver Island.
Pictures to follow.
