Navigating through El Capitan Passage


It is hard to tell from this picture (because it was raining so hard), but there are 7 navigational markers in this area about 1/4 mile in length! They are red and green, and if you go outside the markers you WILL hit the bottom.

Time: 1030 Hrs: 972.8
Humidity: 80% Temp: 16 C Rain, rain, rain.
Lv: Sarkar Cove
Course: Sea Otter Sound > Karheen Passage > Gulf of Esquibel >San Christoval Channel > Craig
More whales as we leave Sarkar Cove just before we enter a narrow channel between two islands. They are everywhere! We have to slow the boat down to make sure we are not interfering with them, but they are fascinating to watch. It has been raining steady all day, we did get the mainsail up for a bit of sailing through it all.
Arv: Craig, Prince of Wales Island
Lat: 55 28.76 N

We are in Craig at an internet coffee shop. Just finished a bowl of their locally caught halibut chowder...... very yummy. Now back to the docks to see if we can find some prawns for dinner. Next internet opportunity will be PR (Prince Rupert). Ciao!!

Nice to hear from you again! Sounds like you're still having fun. Are you anxious to get back home yet? Your pictures are great. Have you gone to the Family Blog and seen all the reunion pics ? Phil was here this morning for a couple of hours and had breakfast with me. Then he was off to work again for 10am. Tonight from 6-9pm Moira and her staff are having a picnic at Mission Creek Park for all her clients. I''ll send you the e-mail about it. I'm going and taking another Granny. We're still picking BIG, DARK, RIPE AND SWEET CHERRIES!!!

Just keep sailing and having fun.
Love,Mom

Hello Kathy and Jerry.
I enjoy your blogs so much , you have an incredible way of telling us what you see and expierence. Especially about the wild life in the ocean. About that bear in the grass, what a shocker it must have been for the two of you.
Hope your cold is gone by the time you read this. Beside us going through a heat wave in most of BC, nothing else is realy new in Ladysmith. Our son and his little girl from Ontario are leaving on friday again going back home. I will miss them. I wish you both safe sailing. Prince Charles looks so great and healthy. I think he really enjoys that holiday, just like the two of you. I will keep my eye out for your next blog posting. I really enjoy it.
