Tuesday June 26, 2012
Lv Nanaimo Harbour 8:30a
Fuel: 52 lt 2029 hours
Water: both tanks full
Ar: Jedidiah Island 1:30p
NW Winds 10 -15 knots this morning, made for a bumpy ride. Two of our crew were sick, the third has a stomach of steel. All three got fell asleep for awhile, so things were very quiet around here for a good hour or so.
We are going to go ashore on Jedidiah to see if we can find the wild sheep while we burn off some extra energy.
Kathy & Jerry.......love exploring the Gulf Islands and coastal waters of British Columbia on our sailboat. We also have become fond of exploring central Mexico during the winter months, and hanging out in the small town of Ajijic. We hope our photos and blogging will give you the chance to experience the same, and maybe inspire you to do some exploring yourself.
New crew member
We welcome aboard our newest crew.... Maggie. She joined our family this spring on March 23. She celebrated her first birthday on April 27th. She is very smart, so we are hopeful that she will learn her new duties quickly.
Splendid Mane is a 2002 Beneteau 393, 40 feet in lenght. We have radar, color chartplotter, 56 hp yanmar engine, autopilot, autostream feathering propeller, dingy with 6hp engine, dodger with full enclosure, two staterooms, two heads, fully equipped galley, and lots more extras. It is a safe, comfortable boat for two people but would be easy to sail singlehanded as well.
