Arriving in Prince Rupert


June 10, 2007
Time: 0730 Hrs: 820
Humidity: 75% Temp: 13 C Overcast, winds 10-20 knots, light rain.
Lv: Ada Islands
Course: Chatham Sound > Prince Rupert Harbour
We decided to leave early inspite of the yucky weather. Our destination is Prince Rupert. We motor out and put up the sails. It is good sailing weather all the way to the Prince Rupert Harbour. Charles was sea sick again for all you concerned with his well-being.
Arv: Prince Rupert
Lat: 54 19.21 N
Lon: 130 19.09 W
Time: 0930
Trip: 12.8 nm Log: 3089.5 nm
Our first stop is the Petro Canada Fuel dock. We heard from some other sailors back in Hartly Bay that there was a land slide on the highway into PR, so there is no fuel for pleasure boaters, just fishermen. That was one reason we wanted to take our time to get here, because we didn’t want to just sit waiting to fill up. We did hear on the VHF that they now have limited supply. While Jerry fills the tank, I walk next door to the Prince Rupert Yacht Club to see if they have any room for us. No room, so we head a little further in to another marina and raft up with a big charter boat. Most of the boats in this marina are commercial fishermen, but it works just fine for us. This is a picture of one of the many eagles that hang around the marina, hoping for a hand out.
Fuel fill 109 L $106.00

June 11 & 12
We are still in PR, getting groceries and a few other items. Tomorrow we are heading north again and will stay overnight one last night in Canada then it is on to Alaska. Our first stop will be overnight in Foggy Bay (we had to get permission to stay here before we clear customs) then on to Ketchikan on Friday. Cheers!

Just noticed I replied on your previous Post. Hope you do read it.
My grandson Everett also enjoys your posts. He and Margeret his wife bought a small sail boatnot to long ago , it sleep original two, so for now it is just day sail trips and fishing. They are dreaming to be able to do one day what you two are doing now. So you see you are their example. Take care.

Kathy, I'm not leaving comments on every day but am thoroughly enjoying this whole trip with you....waterfalls, beautiful little islands, small communities, views, pics of Prince Charles, eagles, dolphins, cruise ships (that was really cool), etc. Take some pics of you and Jerry! I have 2 sick kitties today. They went to the clinic and Moira thinks it's a respiratory thing (something like a human cold). They just sit around and mope.

Take care and stay safe.
Love,
Mom
