Becher Bay to Barkley Sound, Dodger Channel

Our anchor collected some 'stuff' overnight! This was the biggest glob of seaweed we have ever collected in one short night.

Friday July 10, 2009
Leave: Campbell Cove 0520
We got an early start because we were rudely awoken by all the recreational fishermen zooming by in their boats! Oh well, it was just as well, because then we will just make it a super long day and get all the way to Barkley. It is almost lunch time right now and we are past Port Renfrew and almost even with Cape Flattery on the Olympic Penninsula.
No wind yet and we have the current going with us.
Arrive: Dodge Channel, between Diana Island and King Edward Island 1845
Lat: 48 50.05 Lon: 125 11.69
Trip log: 145.5 nm
Today was a battle from after lunch until we put the anchor down. The winds picked up to 25 knots almost straight on, and the waves were 2 meters. We motor-sailed all afternoon, and are now exhausted and ready for bed! Jerry is already asleep.
Tomorrow we get to sleep in, enjoy some down time and then get the kayaks out!
