The Rain or Shine Group Sails to Canada up the Inside Passage!
S/V Aquila, a 40' Hunter
sailboat with a full cockpit
enclosure for weather
protection, will be sailing in July and August, 2015, from Portland
to Bella Bella, British Columbia
, and back.
will be from Portland down the Columbia
River, up the Washington
Coast, east on the Strait of Juan de Fuca, and then up the Inside Passage route
on the east side of Vancouver
Island, with the intention of continuing north of Port Hardy beyond Vancouver
Island, probably to Bella Bella, British Columbia
. Return will probably be by the same route.
There are opportunities for people to join the boat
as crew for whatever part of the trip that they desire. Possible arrangements are flexible. Length of the entire trip is about six weeks. A passport is required for the Canadian part of the trip.
