Last fix on your AIS was on the 7th in Annette Inlet.

Same place AIS off to conserve power. Both Navionics and Anchor Alarm on the iPhone had me in the middle of salt Spring for about 10 minutes. As I said strange.

After 3 days anchored and not dragging an inch I was confident I haven’t moved - but used the MK1 eyeball to be sure.

Makes you wonder about that old adage to always believe your instruments.

I would have thought the healthy Fresh Oysters would have helped with the medicinal needs of a Nordic Sailor.

Then maybe they did and that’s why the end of a great voyage. New rigging, an adventure in a Spring storm, rendezvous with a sailing friend, sounds like a cruise fulfilled.

Be grateful there isn't an import tax on bringing that back.
There probably should be, though.

Our boy is making good time. The tide currents have just changed into his favor. Now if he is a good a calculator as Stu on his fuel consumption he should be in Everett by tomorrow PM.

Welcome home. Hope you feel better soon. It'll take a couple of more days. Cory says to apologize to you, too. :)
Truly "The Bail Cruise." All four of us did, on this one. No more naming until the blinkin' cruise is done. Please...:)

Naming a cruise... you could call it:
  • The Flu Cruise
  • (your part) The Hide from Force 8 Winds cruise
  • (for me) The Out and Back in a Day Cruise... Really that was a "Day Sail"
  • Terry - Where is Every Body Cruise...

  • That's how you get 4 versions of the same story.....
  • Reminds me of my parents trip to Europe (Mom kept the log and took the pics. so you know who we believe)
