Together, Glen Wilson and Cheryl Crowther sailed to Haida Gwaii in the summer of 2023, exploring the coast along the way. They had a wonderful adventure and loved the experience. There were unexpected boat repairs, a couple of docking misadventures, some amazing anchorages and a couple of long passages.

Starting out from Victoria in late May, they travelled north through Seymour Narrows and Johnston Strait. They took some time in the Broughton Archipelago and travelled north along the mainland coast before traversing Cape Caution. They took time to explore the north coast with its many islands and fiords before crossing to Haida Gwaii. They explored Graham Island by car from Queen Charlotte City to Old Massett before venturing south through Gwaii Haanas. From Anthony Island, at the south end of Haida Gwaii, they crossed to Goletas Channel and travelled south to Victoria.

They look forward to sharing their adventures with you.


Glen has been a member of BCA for 18 years and has served on the VI Watch in several positions, including Vice Commodore. He spent time sailing his own boat in the Mediterranean and then completed a circumnavigation. Glen has been a locally based sailor for 40 years. Cheryl is relatively new to sailing, but she is an accomplished boater, having travelled extensively in local waters and travelled to Alaska twice.
