Perhaps this is why most folks don’t paddle the Inside Passage in March. After three separate sessions of dry-suiting up and getting tossed around in the surf yesterday, conditions continue to worsen (http://www.weatheroffice.gc.ca/marine/forecast_e.html?mapID=03&siteID=14301&stationID=XFA).
We’re now stuck in Campbell River hoping the current storm will pass quickly. It’s proving challenging to keep to a 20-25 mile/day pace with these weather hold-ups. But we’re taking the time here to dry out gear and prep for upcoming legs. Keep your fingers crossed that our next update will be from Port Hardy!
