Ahh, to be out to sea, the feel of the wind on your face as you stand your first watch of the evening, the sound of the boat going through the water, and yes knowing that your barf bowl has a tightly sealed lid!
Mel and I had our first overnight sail together, from Sooke to Bamfield in Barkely Sound.
This passage had us in the Strait of Juan deFuca. We left Sooke at about 9:30 pm and arrived at Bamfield at 10:00 a.m. the next morning. Even though I got seasick it was very satisfying and comforting to know that we can do it.
I will tell you more about our adventures in Barkley Sound in my next blog.
