Portland island to Campbell Cove in Becher Bay

Sun coming up this morning over the sailboats anchored near Sidney Spit.

Thursday July 9, 2009
Leave: Princess Cove, Portland Island 0645
So far, no wind, but forecast is for 15 -20 knots this afternoon, coming straight at us. We are getting an early start to try and avoid the winds.
Arrive: Campbell Cove 1320
Trip log: 68.0
Lat: 48 19.65 Lon: 123 37.83
Beautiful open bay, protected from the 15-20 knot westerly winds whipping through Juan de Fuca Straight. The water here is so clear, we could see our anchor chain laying on the bottom 16' down. The sun is out and it has turned into a beautiful day.
Tomorrow we plan another early start to beat the wind again and have the currents going in the the same direction we to give us a boost.

A little reminder of home!
