It's exciting to join a group of knot-icals. We're looking to cruise this April - up to Desolation Sound for a couple of weeks - mid-month. Any other cruisers out their going our way?
Spring Moon is our pride & joy - a Lord Nelson 41 which is as safe as they get- and goes the right speed for us. She's not Lightening - but we're not looking for the fast lane. That's what we're leaving behind!
Looking forward to getting to know other Cruisers..
hi spring moon, will be in vancouver in the near future, going to help a friend build a dock, his house is on an island, no idea where but very near vancouver, am from the other coast myself but love it on your side as well, have a good cuise and am hoping to do some sailing out there my self, all the best
Welcome aboard Spring Moon. Nice name. Will be out and about in that relative area but won't be until July, August and September. I will probably stick to the other side of Quadra though and head up a ways. My plans change as I cruise.
Had the boat up in your area in 2007 did a nice cruise up to Deso Sound in late June. People thought we were too early. Weather was fine with me. Not all sun but enough sunny days. No crowds.
Between us there was, as I have already said somewhere, the bond of the sea. Besides holding our hearts together through long periods of separation, it had the effect of making us tolerant of each other's yarns -- and even convictions.Heart of Darkness Joseph Conrad
Welcome to the forum Spring Moon. From your post, seems you will be out-and-about in three weeks or so. I am hopeing to get out for the month of April, but work keeps knocking on the door. You know how it goes, it will only take you two days and ends up taking a week. With that being said I hope to get out around the third or fourth of April. I am moored in Comox, so not too far to go to hit Johnstone Strait. Stay in touch and hope to see you out there, maybe a meet at Heriot Bay??
Welcome to the forum, I am sure you will enjoy youself here.
Welcome from another Vancouverite. Hope you get the good weather while you're there. Though April is pretty early, at least you'll avoid the summer crowds. Keep a sharp look-out for deadheads along your route.
