After a few days of rain, it feels like the Summer was a long time ago. Winter coats have been moved to the front of the closet, and boat projects are now “inside” projects… although we are frantically trying to finish some of the bright-work before it starts to rain every day!
From the tales I hear, it looks like most of our membership did what they do best and were out sailing most of the Summer. We had two great weeks out on Counting Stars following the Rendezvous in Newcastle Island. We met some of you at beautiful anchorages, made new friends, learned lots about our “new to us” boat, and made lots of mistakes as we went along… but as experienced sailors tell us, those are “good lessons learned”.
We had a lovely BURP in Smuggler Cove, with Don and Dorothy from RagTime and BCA founding members Don and Jo Graham from Silverwood. It was great to see familiar boats and get together to chat about sailing plans and boat projects.
We also had a lovely time rafted up to Camdeboo in Garden Bay, Pender Harbour. This is the farthest North we have sailed under our own keel. It was great to celebrate with Jennifer and Campbell and chat about the many lessons we learned in this trip.
Summer time was slow for Currents. As there were not many article submissions we thought we would do one digest at the end of the Summer. Having said that, the archives will show July and August issues just in case you want to read them separately.
Stay tuned for the September issue coming to your inboxes soon.
