Nice to hear Kenz. The Seymour river, Burrard inlet, English bay?




Coal Harbour Marina, under the Lions Gate Bridge and on to English Bay . . . and quickly returned.

We learned that Allie is prone to sea-sickness. :P

We learned that Allie is prone to sea-sickness.

Oh dear, not exactly condusive to sailing. That reminds me of the time over 35 years ago when some mates and me went across the English Channel from Hamble to Cherbourg, for an overnight saunter in a 1/4 tonner 22 footer sailboat. Next day we went down the French coast to Alderney, and got caught up in the Alderney Races, so we had to use the diesel engine to go out to sea and come back in to Brae Harbour.

On the way back home that night across the Channel, we hit a force 7 gusting 8, and in a small boat like that we were bobbing up and down like a cork. Normally I'm pretty good on the water but that night I was violently seasick from 11pm until dawn the next day. It was an experince I'm not sure I want to repeat!

Yeah getting sick on a rolling sea is no fun. Smallish boats like your 22 foot'er or the 26' San Juan that I'm a 1/3 owner of are designed and built to handle relatively rough weather, but nothing can make it comfortable.

Yesterday was sunny, warm, light winds and a calm sea. Allie + open water is just not a good mix. :D

Do tell dear Allie, if you have not already, that it is nothing to be ashamed of. It affects many other people too.
At least she was adventurous enough to try the new experience. Too bad it did not turn out quite as planned.

That sailboat was professionally built, and the owner and other crew there were experienced, we could probably have gone up to force 9-10 without any probs. I knew we wouldn't sink or drown, it was just a wretched few hours of unpleasantness. But I wouldn't have missed it for the world!!

Winning on a clear, moon-lit Saturday evening. Weather-guessers calling for chance of rain Sunday afternoon - we'll see.

Happy Easter to all.

Winning in bed after an educative, if not exactly fun, day. Drove home in light mist, the precursor of the rain that's supposed to be done by morning.

Changed my mind again. I do have a cold, but it's a mild one. I only feel like minor crap, not completely miserable. And of course the timing is about right for me have picked it up when I went to my doctor's office for some paperwork. :(
