There are many remote
communities along the coast, specifically from midlle Vancouver Island north. The weather
can be pretty bad in winter though. Usually not too cold (above or around freezing) but gray, rainy and windy. Many places are wuite protected as there are just thousands of island. Single
handing is doable, as long as you have a very good weather
You will be sailing very little as you usually get nosely wind
. Every turn you take around and island or headland and the wind
is still on the nose. You can always turn around and go the other way.
Look up Tuva and Pierre at Echo Bay in the Broughtons. They have been living up there for many years and can porbably give you information as to the work options. The are usually at the Vancouver and Seattle boat show
in January and February too with a booth.
Many indian reservations up there too.
Once you get past Cape Caution north it gets really remote
with some indian settlements such as Bella Bella and Bella Coola and almost nothing else in between.
The wild life is just breath taking. In a single
day you will see more animals
, on land and in the air, than in a whole year in the Caribbean
(in our experience).
