Charles's first day.

Date: May 18, 2007
Time: 1520
Leave: Ladysmith
Log: 2486 nm Hours: 694
Course: Ladysmith Harbour > Stuart Channel > Dodds Narrows > Nanaimo Harbour
Arrive: Nanaimo Harbour
Lat 49 10.265N

Trip: 15.4 nm

This is how Prince Charles spent his afternoon on his way to Nanaimo. His Royal Highness is cuddled up in his new 'cat' bed and covered by his favorite blanket.
We had an uneventful day until we started heading through Dodd Narrows. Just when we were at the most narrow part, a big 45 foot powerboat (American!) blows by us like we were standing still, even though we were doing a respectable 7 knots. The a___hole has a bow wave the almost the height of our boat and gave us a good rocking. Funny thing though, they didn't think they were doing anything wrong as they gave us a friendly wave when passing while we were trying to stay on course and not hit the rock wall!
Until next post... Cheers!

It's a "cat's" life! Charles is really looking like a Prince!! Sorry to hear about the big boat in the pass! Don't suppose that will be a problem for you out in the open! Good luck and we look forward to hearing about and seeing your journey. Love, J

What a spoiled 'brat cat'! He looks so cozy, comfortable and cute! What a way to start your voyage with that -----U. S. boat. Keep safe, stay warm and have fun. I'll be checking your blog every day...more than one time.
Love and lots of hugs,
Mom

oh those Americans! ;-D Prince Charless looks well-ensconced and adjusting like a proper catlike prince should. Have a safe adventure you guys. I look forward to learning more boat words and seeing pics of your adventures.
