We are off again, heading into a Sou'easter!

Splendid Mane is getting loaded up today so we can get an early start tomorrow. The weather forecast is for a good sou'easter to blow in Georgia Straight, which suits us just fine because we are heading for the Sunshine Coast. We have to get through Gabriola Passage close to slack (1130), so we are going to try to get away from the dock at 0800. GG is going to join us on Saturday morning! We will be picking her up in Sechelt (that is after we go through Skookumchuk!) Have a look at the video below for an idea of what can happen if you don't check the current table for Skookumchuck Narrows and ONLY go through at slack ...
