Permission to Come Aboard

Hello to all from the Pacific Northwest, I"m a proud owner of an 1963 Islander 32 (and a Islander 24). I'm planning a trip around Vancouver Island this summer and I'm also looking for ideas, recommendations, thoughts, plans and general knowledge from other experienced boaters. So what better than to join the Cruisers Forum. It's not What I know but Who I know that knows!
Thank You

Welcome aboard, Nikolina. Beautiful cruising area...the San Juans, the inside passage... (we've only taken the ferries...but, someday...). Happy sailing!

So enjoy, sail safe

Re: Permission to come aboard

Welcome aboard

Were also in the PNW but up the Columbia river and are planning our circumnavication of Vancouver Island in our future. Were hopeing the Japinese tsunami trash will not be too bad off the west coast this year but there is stuff showing up on beaches in both Vancouver Island and the Washington coast already ( 55 gal sized fising floats, ouch ), almost a year early from the forcast. There's a couple living on an Islander 36 at our marina and they post here some. We have sailed the San Juan Islands and Pudget Sound in our last boat but haven't taken our current boat for the almost 1200 mile sail/cruse around the state and back ( that's a lot of sailing in one state ) , were lucky that way

Xymotic: Thank you. I don't know, maybe they're like older volkswagons you can't have just one! I almost picked up a third (it was free on CL) one but couldn't figure out what I was going to tell the wife. The 32 is moored in Port Angeles and the 24 in my shop.

Re: Permission to come aboard

Hello webenjamin, I've wondered what sailing the Columbia would be like. I been thinking on weekend canoe trips also, of course I'd have to get a canoe. Start as far up I possible go for two days drive home and then pick up where I left off the next weekend. And continue to Astoria. But you're right our sailing grounds our huge!

Re: Permission to come aboard

If you wanted to trace Lewis and Clarks cannoe trip down the Snake river to the confluence of the Columbia river ( where we moor our boat) and down to Astoria there,s the State Park Water Trail with camping all along but be ready to carry your gear around the 8 dams and locks. We go thru the locks like some folks go under bridges, it's 4 locks to the Pacific. With the wind waves on the Columbia river you would be better off on your bigger Islander and then be ready to hold up untill the west wind quits blowing.

Re: Permission to come aboard

I was on the verge of doing that trip 5yr ago. Moved to CA and got married instead.

I have a friend who's a bit. . gung-ho shall we say, that went clockwise around the island in about 2 wk, most of the way alone. Most people go counter-clockwise.

From my research count on motoring a lot of the way up the inside with occasional supplies available. Coming south on the outside count on minimal supplies being available until you get to Uclulet/Tofino.
