    There are two or three marinas in Cowichan Bay, but we keep our boat up in Maple Bay Marina. It's more protected and there is a place to park!

    Give me a holler if you're back this way again.

    Roland, Can I tap your experience in Taylor’s stoves? I’ve had no end of issues with ours. I think I must be doing something very wrong.

    We’re currently in Haida Gwaii and will have internet and phone today and tomorrow.

    Hi Roland,
    I guess Sointula provides more protection from what comes down the Strait. I have cruised up/down all of B.C. and remember wondering how protected/unprotected many spots would be in the winter time. My cruising has always been May through September of course.

    Alert Bay--having been there sailing up/down B.C., I'd think Alert Bay would be exposed from weather systems coming from the south. I'm preparing to do more 'year round cruising in those waters and wondering about the weather during the winter months.

    Vessel Make/ model
    35ft classic ketch/yawl.
    Vessel Name
    Alert Bay, Vancouver Island
    long time cruiser and occasional live-aboad. crossed Atlantic in 2011 cont' to Canada via Panama and west coast in 2014. (looking for crew)
    I live on the west coast of Canada on a tiny island off the north coast of Vancouver island on the edge of the NW Canadian wilderness where the road ends! to go north you have to have a boat of a float plane, there are NO roads. My local cruising ground is desolation sound and you are more likely to meet a film crew for the discovery channel than a lawyer! I work as a nurse in the local community hospital mostly with the Canadian first nations. Before becoming a nurse I taught adventure sports for many years in the UK.
    Voya was built in 1973 in Exeter UK originally to race in the S approaches, so built tough! I spent 7 years refitting her before the Atlantic trip, everything from engine and machinery to new sails, rig and accommodation as she was pretty much a bare hull when I got her and had been laid up more than 10 years.
