    Rendezvous

    Peregrine (1973 32ft) with Annette and Sarein will most likely join for at least an evening! Still trying to work out the schedule around our planned trip to the Broughtons. Do we register at Genoa Bay or on this thread?

    I believe it's best to contact the marina directly.

    Quick Q on routing

    At this point, I'm planning on checking into Canada at Sidney.

    To get around the corner to Genoa Bay, are there useful things to know about the passages (Iriquois Passage or John Passage, and then Colburne Passage)?

    Or if unfamiliar with the area, is it more prudent just to go around Coal island and up from there?

    2016 Rendezvous

    Have done this route several times. You check into customs at the Sidney Marina just past the hard turn at the north end of the entrance between the breakwaters. This is about 0.4 nm north of the Wash State Ferry Terminal. The open water path to Genoa Bay would take you NE out of Sidney leaving Dock I to port and then Shute Passage into Satellite Ch. It is longer. You will dodge ferries out of Swartz Bay BC Ferries terminal at the E end of Colburne Passage, Gosse Passage and the NW end of Colburne Passage but you can hear them on Victoria Traffic. You can also round Coal I on the E side into Colburne. The more interesting route is to N out of Sidney, W of Little Shell I into the day marked passage between Fernie I and Goudge I to W and Coal I to the E then into Colburne Passage. The BC ferry traffic will be obvious either leaving the terminal or approaching via the above mentioned "openings" and there is room to heave to for the ferries or alter etc as required to keep away from them. It is close for them and they don't like to move for us little fellas. Do plan to traverse at slack of near slack to keep things simple if using the "interesting" route. Cdn chart 3441 or if you are rich the large scale 3476

    Red face Not this year, after all

    Regrets.


    Too many things going on, for us. New engine in the boat needs local 'break in' hours and some more work yet on auxiliary systems, and we are almost there, but not quite.
    Our house remodel is taking longer than planned.
    Other "stuff" that keeps us closer to home, and the upshot is that I canceled our July reservation for the boat @ Genoa Bay.
    (They are extremely gracious, even when being told of a cancellation -- quite unlike the reception at some other marinas I will not name.)

    You guys and gals have fun! Enjoy happy hour on each others' Ericson.
    Stay up late! Have coffee and breakfast at the floating cafe.

    Regards,

    Loren & Kathy, in distant Portland OR

    Three weeks!

    Yes, three weeks from tomorrow is the Friday of the Rendezvous weekend.

    I have a really long list of things still to do to get the boat ready (I'm hoping winches and clutches go on this weekend...), but nothing that looks like a deal-breaker. Knock on wood.

    If you've already contacted the marina directly, you should be good to go.

    If you haven't - feel free to call them (800-572-6481 or 250-746-7621)

    ...and if that's problematic for some reason, let me know and I'd be happy to call them on your behalf.

    I haven't kept a formal roll, but according to this thread it looks like we'll have
    -- Achates (34)
    -- Dawntreader (?)
    -- Diversion (32)
    -- Kymodoce (29)
    -- Makana (32)
    -- Mola Mola (25+)
    -- Morning Mist (30+)
    -- Peregrine (32)
    -- Second Star (28+)
    -- Terra Nova (34)
    -- Touchrain (38)
    ... let me know if I've missed anyone?

    and, PLEASE NOTE: I'm not the "event coordinator". I hope (but don't know) that someone (local?) is coordinating with the marina to use the shelter space for a pot-luck or other festivities.

    Anyone? Anyone? Bueller?

    Bruce


    PS - if anyone is planning to go from "around here", let me know if you want to meet up and/or travel in convoy. My plan at this point is
    -- Everett to Port Townsend, Weds 4-July (fireworks at Fort Worden!)
    -- Port Townsend to Sidney, Thurs 5-July
    -- Sidney to Genoa Bay (with, probably, some sightseeing along the way) Fri, 6-July

    Thanks for all the info, Bruce. We will be traveling from the lamb roast on Saturna, July 1. We look forward to meeting everyone. Sorry to hear you canít make it, Loren. Was looking forward to seeing you after reading your posts all these years.

    Planning for currents

    But it looks - at least on paper - that there is an interesting counter-current going the right direction if I hug the west side of San Juan Island.

    Anyone ever use that? How close to shore would I need to be? (noting that there's new voluntary "no-go zone" along that shoreline, 1/4 mile out and 1/2 mile outside Lime Kiln Point)

    Thanks in advance, Bruce

    (edited to add a snip of the current-atlas)
