Sooke Basin to.... Genoa Bay, Vancouver Island

Orca, one of many in a pod we passed in Juan de Fuca

Light house at Race Rocks, near Victoria
Sunday July 13
Depart: Sooke Basin 0745
Clear, winds 15-25 17 C
We are currently sailing just past Victoria Harbour. We are having a fantastic day for sailing, haven't had to put the motor on except to get out of Sooke. There are lots of boats of all kinds around this area, we have to watch we don't run into anyone! We are not used to that.
Arrive: Genoa Bay, Vancouver Island 1930 Lat: 48 45.74Lon: 123 35.88
Trip Log: 904.1 nm
Another great day for sailing, we saw 30 knots around Race Rocks, with some pretty big swells (that turned us around), but once we rounded the end of the island, the winds died down and the swells disappeared. We are looking forward to a short trip home tomorrow.
